Description

Our meeting point is on the main road in Eggares village in front of "Haris Taverna". Maggie will pick us up from there with her truck to do the rest of the bumpy road to her farm. The bumpy farm road between the bamboo is a part of the experience.


 You will find Maggie under an olive tree where she has all her work tables, blocks of Naxian crystalline white marble, and a set of locally forged tools.


She will share
with you a brief history of marble arts, introduce you to the different types of tools, and discuss the properties of marble and other stones.


She will guide
you through the use and the traditional hand-carving technique of each tool and you will practice with each tool on a block of marble with what you have learned.


When you have "mastered" each tool, we will proceed to design and create a relief sculpture that you can then take home with you.


It can be an Archaic Greek design from one of Maggie's templates or an idea you have brought with you.


She will work with you on the approach, process, and execution of the piece.


After three hours of immersing yourself with the stone, you will have an understanding of traditional carving techniques and the process of marble sculpture.


Absolutely no experience is necessary even if you are someone who says, "I have no artistic talent". The techniques and skills can be learned.


Note: If you need a transfer outside of the town (Chora), let us know answering to the question before you do your booking!

What's included

Maggie will provide a worktable, a block of Naxos white marble for practice, a small stone for a relief carving, safety glasses, hand tools, hammer, files, sanding papers and also fresh lemonade, coffee, or tea, and a sample of the fresh fruits from the garden.  Everyone takes their finished relief carving with them.

Note: Also, you have extra 30 minutes if you want to spend more time finishing your artwork!
