O que você fará

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
To make it easier, I will meet you on the main road just as you reach the village of Eggares from Chora. There is a small intersection where you will find the old school of Eggares and large parking for Xaris Taverna. There are no restrooms in Grimantis and wear comfortable shoes to 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.

First time in my life to carve in marble, and it was just lovely! I liked the result, but even if I didn't, the workshop and the entire experience - guided by the wonderful Maggy - were worth it.

This experience absolutely completed our trip to Naxos. We have three kids (ages 2,8,10). Knowing the kids may or may not focus for three hours, we booked to do two carvings. Honestly, the time together was amazing. The older two children really got involved in their carvings and the challenge it presented. Maggie was beyond patient with them and so welcoming and genuine. It felt like we had known her for years. This experience definitely sparked an interest for our family, and once we return to the US, we have plans to set up a small space for the adults and kids alike, to continue experimenting with marble carving. This is a gem of an experience if you are looking to find peace surrounded by beautiful countryside, working amongst fruits trees and marble carvings. We are already trying to figure out how to get back to Naxos and to spend more time carving in the Maggie’s garden under her instruction.

Great experience, Meggie is a really good teacher! I highly recommend this workshop. Even my boyfriend with no sense of art had a lot of fun and said he would do it again. We could have done this the whole day! It's also a unique souvenir from Greece :)

I really enjoyed the experience! It was definitely something unique and interesting. Also, the garden where I carved was awesome. We ate some fruits, we had a laugh, we drank some tea (unfortunately, I forgot what type..something with lemon). I ended up with a souvenir that I couldn’t have bought :) Truly recommend it! It is worth it!

Très bon moment passé avec 2 de mes enfants (12 et 16 ans) où nous avons découvert la sculpture et avons essayé de reproduire les techniques apprises par Maggie. Dépaysant par le lieu et l'activité. Je conseille vivement.
