How does the sculpting experience work

This experience is on request and suitable for small and large groups. We propose it as an extension of the marble quarries tour in the morning. After a snack lunch in Colonnata, in the early afternoon move into the workshop for the sculpting lesson.

Upon arrival at the sculpture workshop, you will be welcomed by the owner, who will show you around.

You will then be provided with a marble tile, protective glasses, gloves, hammer, and chisel.

Draw what you like on the piece of marble: an animal, a flower, a fantasy figure.

The sculptor will show how to use the hammer and chisel to start removing the marble around the drawing.

Start sculpting on your own, if the sculptor judges you are good enough, will let you use the power-tools.

Smooth your marble work with emery and sandpaper and finally sign it !!!

Go back home with your marble work.
