Neither size nor material determine the beauty of a sculpture – of much more importance are form, composition, and quality of work.
Who desires to create something precious out of soft stone?
Who has only one week in which to do it?
Stone sculpting has since ancient times been a delightful activity and can be practised by anyone. Many people have an affinity with this kind of art. From matter, a piece of stone or marble, we can – with patience and imagination - create a new form with the simplest of tools.
These courses for beginners are also suitable for advanced students who wish to put their creative ideas into practice, with our professional and individual support.
In order to work effectively with stone it is necessary to have a knowledge of its properties, and to know how to use the available tools and machines correctly. In the basic course you will create a cubic form from a rough stone. This enables you to familiarize yourself with the basic working processes, and you will have opportunities of practising the relevant techniques.
