Sculpture Courses - Marble and Travertine

We are happy to announce that in the months of July, August and September 2008, the sculptor Piero Mengozzi will offer a "basic" course on carving marble and travertine. Participants will be limited to 2 per session in order to give a personalized attention to each student. The sessions will last from 2 to 5 days, depending on the level of preparedness of participants, and will be held in the artist's studio in Montegonzi (Ar).

The course fee includes: 6 hours of instruction per day, use of the necessary equipment to carve and refinish a sculpture, a stone block measuring 15 cm x 15 cm x 40 cm of travertine or marble that will remain property of the student, and a picnic lunch. Participants should bring a duster coat, safety shoes, protective glasses, and gloves. Insurance against personal injury is not included in the price and is at the participant’s expense. For students needing accomodations we can suggest a "B&B", a farmhouse or a tourist village nearby.
