Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

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.

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.

I had a really good time! Maggie is very good teacher and even better and friendly host. I’m glad that I could join this unique activity. When you are looking for a something special, a highlight of your holidays on Naxos, I highly recommend the carving marble with Maggie. I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy!

Every place has a must do activity that speaks for its authentic nature. I whole heartedly believe this is it for Naxos! This was one of the best classes I have ever taken and not because I was any good - in fact I was pretty damn terrible, but, these invited us into their home walked us through technique, told us stories behind their pieces of work in their garden and the history of marble carving in all those wonderful Ancient Greek temples you adore. I honestly feel this activity is to Naxos what a cooking class is to Tuscany, Italy. Book on, drink some wine, have lots of laughs and make something wonderful!

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!

Flere tips

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 :)
