Mit fogunk csinálni?

You will meet me under an olive tree where I will have work tables, blocks of crystalline white marble of Naxos, and a sets of locally forged tools. I will share with you a brief history of marble arts, introduce different types of tools, and discuss the properties of marble and other stones. I will guide you thru the use and the traditional hand carving technique of each tool. You will practice with each tool on a block of marble for a period of time. 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 my templates or and idea that you have brought with you. I will work with you on the approach, process, and execution of the piece. I take my work seriously, but also embrace a fun and relaxed environment in the peaceful settings of our garden.
After three hours of immersing yourself with the stone you will have an understanding of traditional carving techniques and 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.
Other things to note
I will meet you on the main road just as you reach the village of Eggares in front of Xaris Taverna. There are no modern restrooms on our farm so be prepared!

I am a sculptor, gardener, and a mother of two living in Naxos for the past 9 years. The reason I came to Greece 11 years ago was specifically to immerse myself into the history and techniques of marble sculpture. My journey in stone carving actual began in the States starting at the age of 19 as a hobby for many years using the local limestone in Indiana and Texas. I spent 2 years in Tinos island working in various marble workshops and at the School of Fine Arts in Pyrgos. I use traditional hand tooling techniques as well as modern power tools. I enjoy very much to share the history, techniques and my philosophy of stone carving from what I have gathered over the years.

Marble carving was what I was looking forward to most in my trip and it didn't disappoint. Maggie has a wonderful, unique and beautiful location for this amazing class and she teaches this crash course in the ancient arts very well. My group was given wine, lemonade and lovely grapes, and Maggie even arranged a taxi to take me home. 100% recommend

We had such a lovely morning with Maggie. Marble carving is not easy but very relaxing and Maggie is there to help you every step of the way. (It also makes you very appreciative of all the marble statues in the museums..) The setting in the garden is really nice.It was a wonderful experience and we enjoyed it very much!

A really awesome experience. It gives you so much more appreciation for all the marble art you see in the museums. Simple tools, difficult execution. But Maggie helps along the way and you jump right in! Its a great stress reliever too and I think everyone comes out of it proud.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this tour and thought I wouldn’t appreciate it. But Maggie, the host, was extremely patient and a brilliant storyteller. She made this experience a very special and enjoyable one, and I am so glad I booked this tour with her. She spent four hours with us - rather than three - to ensure that everyone was able to finish their art work.

Really nicely personal, just make sure to come with an idea of what you want and what size of carving you want (marble is heavy to travel with
