About this activity
At arrival you choose a stone together with the professional artist. If you already have some sculpting experience, you might want to choose a harder stone. If it's your first time working in a stone, you will carve in a softer stone, serpentine or soapstone. If you need inspiration, you can have a look at the sculptures in the gallery or in the garden.

There will be a large selection of stones (price not included), all between 5kg (11lbs) and 100kg (220lbs) as some sculptors prefer to work in a small stone, some in a larger stone. During your 2-day workshop, you normally can finish a stone from 15-40 kg (33-88lbs).

Once you get your stone and toolbox, you move to the workshop in the sculpture garden. The Zimbabwean artist will explain you how to make a solid base on your stone.  After this, the shaping starts. You will be using hammers, chisels and rasps.

The second day is necessary for you to finish your sculpture. The stone needs to be washed with sand-papers, heated and a wax will be applied. Once the sculpture has cooled down, you can shine your own piece of art.

During the 2 coffee breaks with biscuits and/or cake, you can talk to the other participants and exchange ideas. Your lunch will include home-baked bread, and a variety of salads, cheese, jam, etc.
