Sculpture courses in Carrara, the bithplace of marble

A unique and unforgettable encounter with the art of sculpture, in the magical setting of the quarries of Carrara, the birthplace of marble. An extraordinary location full of history and culture, a vibrant place where time stands still to make room for thought and creativity.

Sculpture Courses

The art of sculpting marble

In this magical context, the artist Michele Monfroni teaches marble sculpture to all those interested in learning the ancient art and trying their hand at a form of artistic expression that made the immortal Michelangelo Buonarroti famous. These courses are for both beginners and more advanced sculptors. In the first case, students are given a gradual introduction to sculpting tools, materials and methods, culminating with the realization of a creative idea. In the second case, sculptors develop their own ideas and carry out sculptural works under the guidance of the Master Sculptor.

Tools and materials - Assistance

Hammers, chisels, points, steps

Participating students have the option to hire or buy a complete sculptor’s tool kit (hammers, chisels, points, steps). Each student will also be provided with:
– a block of white Carrara marble measuring 30x20x20 cms o cm 40x20x20
– electricity and compressed air connections
– covered work space

Once the course is completed, Studio Monfroni will assist students in shipping their sculptures to destinations of choice (packing and couriers).
