WORKSHOPS IN PROVENCE (southern of france)
since 1999
french en français 

In the heart of Provence, between the ‘Gorges du Verdon’ and Saint Tropez, close to Cotignac - a typical village with it’s fountains, market, bars and restaurants - Olivier and Saskia welcome you to their home-studio. Surrounded by nature, on terraced land with a swimmingpool and beautiful view, it ‘s an ideal place to relax in and to express your creativity.

Olivier and Saskia, professional sculptors, members of the french « Maison des Artistes », will introduce you to marble sculpture by using the « direct-carving » technique. This technique requires no preparation, is accessible to everyone and will be used in the workshops. If you are a beginner you will choose white marble, easier to work with. Being advanced you will have the opportunity to discover several coloured marbles, more difficult to work with.

During the workshop everyone will be able to create his own work of art ! Our workshops are based on 1-week periods and given in Summer. The workshop programme covers 5 sculpting days of 6 hours each, for a maximum of 8 participants. The meals are tasty Mediterranean dishes, based on family cooking, prepared by Olivier or Saskia, are taken on our terrace in the shade.

Accommodation possibilities on site or in the neighbourhood. During leisure time you are able to visit the region with it’s tourist attractions.
