Што ќе правите

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.

Maggie offers such a unique and fun experience! It's charming from start to end. The location is spectacular, nestled between some Naxian mountains. Maggie was such a wonderful host, taking us through every step carefully. The time flew past without us noticing! Highly recommend.

We had the pleasure of both experiences offered. My husband took marble carving with Maggie & I took mosaics with her husband Christos. We both loved it. Their farm was a sweet location to exercise our creativity. And Maggie picked us up at the bus stop. We had one our most enjoyable days on Naxos with Maggie & Christos.

Maggie is a great expert in marble sculpturing and truly took care of us, explaining dos and don’ts as well as all basics. The whole family was able to produce its mini sculptures within short period of time!
