Overview

Try marble carving with a local sculptor as your host, and enjoy a first-hand experience of Naxos island’s artisan traditions. Taking place in the shade of olive trees in your host’s garden, the private class includes use of all equipment including locally forged tools and blocks of classic Naxos white marble. You’ll hear the tricks of the trade as you carve, and take home your own relief sculpture at the end.
  • Enjoy a sculpture workshop where no artistic experience is needed
  • Learn about Naxos marble and traditional hand carving techniques
  • Get a glimpse into the life of a local artisan, as you relax in their garden
  • Keep cool as you carve with complimentary water, tea, or coffee

Was very fun, and definitely worth it. It was personal and not a huge seminar type of deal. Honestly wouldn’t mind coming back every year to carve up some marble.

It was an exceptional experience! We felt true artists, carving our own ideas on the marble stone. I strongly recommend it.

Learning how to carve marble was an eye opening experience. Maggie was very accommodating, kind, knowledgeable, pleasant, helpful, and had great patience. Her carving garden is a paradise within itself. My husband and I really enjoyed every minute of it.

The teacher was really nice! She explained the process of sculpting the marble well and had some interesting tidbits about the history. She even gave me a ride back to the port.
