Çfarë do të bësh

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.

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.

An amazing and authentic experience in Maggie’s magical garden! One of a kind opportunity to try one of the most important aspects of Greek culture- marble carving. Nice and personal approach, beautiful sculptures, animals and fruit all around. Got to try delicious lemonade made from lemons growing around the site. I would highly recommend for an unique activity!

Meeting and interacting with Maggie was great. She picked us up in her truck and we drove through a bamboo tunnel to the workshop shared by her and her partner. We learned not only about marble carving but each other. The class is a unique experience that can't be replicated anywhere anywhere but in her garden.

We made the coolest art works! I wasn't sure we'd walk away with something to be proud of, but Maggie is an excellent teacher and we all made beautiful marble carvings. Her garden is gorgeous, and we were treated to delicious coffee and fruit. Highly recommend!
