My husband and I had a really fun experience learning from Maggie and she was very accommodating on what we wanted to carve (my puppy and an IPA). In addition, her farm is just really cool and she provided homegrown pomegranate snacks (and even gave us a couple after the class) and homemade wine. A piece of my husband's marble ended up cracking and she surprised by using the leftover piece and carved our names :) Overall, would definitely recommend this activity -- it really gives you an appreciation of marble carvings and is a true arm workout!

My husband and 2 girls (15 & 18) spent a lovely afternoon learning to carve marble. I have a new respect for sculptors and am amazed at the craft. Located on a lovely farm, we were treated to fresh squeezed lemonade, strawberries and local wine. The resident peacock even came out for a stroll. If you are spending a few days on Naxos, I highly recommend this wonderful experience. Thanks, Maggie!

Amazing experience, had a wonderful time carving with Maggie on Naxos! She was well equipped with tools, beautiful pieces of Naxos marble, and her skill and guidance was exceptional. I've been carving marble for over 20 years and had a fantastic time in the workshop. Would definitely do it again.

My daughter Maia (23 years) and I did a 6 day marble carving course with Maggie. It was absolutely great! But hard work!! The first day, we got to know the different tools, how the marble "reacts" to what we do and practiced different techniques. The next 4 days we worked on our individual projects on a quite big piece of marble, using mainly the hammer and different chisels. We also used a mechanical (electric) tool to file coarsely. The last step was using sandpaper for polishing. The results are great and we are very proud of what we made. Maggie was patient, inspiring, fun to be with. The garden is fabulous and we loved sharing lunch (Maggie's salads and our leftovers from the restaurant we ate at the evening before! ;-) I definitely want to come back for a new project when I return to Naxos.

This was one of our top experiences in Greece! After seeing so much marble pieces in the Cyclades it was really nice to be able to create our own. The teaching was great and the environment was very pleasant. I would recommend it to all of those who want to try something different.

Loved this class! Maggie is an excellent instructor and is not only extremely knowledgeable but also very patient and helpful. We went over basic carving techniques and then put them to use carving our own design on our chosen marble piece. Fun, unique experience that is definitely not typical but absolutely worth it.

The 3 hours we spent learning to carve marble with Maggie was the highlight of our Naxos trip! Impressed with how much a beginner can achieve! Thank you Maggie!

Going through Greek museums and seeing all those marble statues made me curious about the process of making them. I looked around for activities in Greece and this one stood out. So much so, I went to Naxos just for it. I was afraid it would be canceled because rain was pouring, but the carving area was sheltered so all was well.
Very friendly and patient teacher! I didn't have my mind set on a design so we went through some options before opting for an owl. The basics and techniques were explained and demonstrated, it took some practice to figure out how to hold the tools. A satisfying result was made with her help, which makes a nice little souvenir too!

All in all, great experience in a relaxing environment. Would recommend!

What an amazing experience! She was such a lovely lady! She guides you through the whole thing. If I ever visit again I’d definitely do it again. Worth it. She made homemade lemonade and gave us some freshly picked strawberries from her garden... amazing! Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
