Great fun! Noisy. Bring a good mask and expect to get marble dust on you.
Harry_D, Oct 2023
I was uncomfortable with the grinder at first, but quickly came to enjoy bringing my own Cycladic head out of a plain block of Parian marble.
Unique and fun experience

I totally recommend this class. I am so impressed that in 3 hours without any prior experience, we each created something from a block of marble. JB gave us each the right amount of step-by-step instructions and encouragement. Be sure to wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty. You might want to wear a long-sleeved shirt and closed-toe shoes. Definitely wear the protective eyewear provided and bring your own mask. If loud noises bother you, wear wax earplugs. The power tools are loud and it gets dusty fast! I came prepared and had a great time!
Amazing

we had the best time learning from JB! a friend and I heard about this experience and had to give it a try. JB was an amazing teacher, it was really fun to go through the sculpting process and to see some of his work. he also made everything really easy to understand. I made a cycladic head and love how it turned out! would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn a new skill and create a super cool souvenir.
Most Unique Experience on Paros!

Getting to choose and create your own design. Using power tools and hand tools to shape your sculptured piece. JB was helpful, knowledgeable and showed passion for his work.
Whenever I visit a new...

Whenever I visit a new place, I like to do projects and show them off to my friends. This was a fantastic and memorable experience. It was roughly a 10-15 min drive from the main port. It does in fact take 3 hours to make and I was provided with sandpaper of various grit to take home and continue working on my marble project. JB was patient, informative and wants you to maintain a safe and fun experience. Carving with a circular type saw does get dusty. I recommend bringing something to cover your hair if you are unable to wash it, face mask, and maybe a long sleeve if it's not too hot. Will def need a shower afterwards. Very happy with my project and grateful for the experience!
Incredible experience.

Our visit to JB's Marble Workshop was simply amazing. The unique experience of creating our own souvenirs out of Greece marble exceeded all expectations. From the warm welcome to the knowledgeable instructors and hands-on approach, every aspect of the workshop was exceptional. The ambiance was filled with the scent of freshly carved marble and working over the beautiful Greek sunset. The studio showcased an impressive array of tools and sculptures. JB guided us with patience and expertise, making the educational journey thoroughly enjoyable. Working with the smooth, cool stone was invigorating, and seeing our designs come to life was immensely satisfying. This workshop is an absolute must for anyone seeking a marvelous and unforgettable experience. Thank you JB for an incredible experience. Please don't miss this. Take a break from the beach and immerse yourself in an experience of a lifetime.
Amazing experience!!

This was such a interesting and different experience!! Jean-Baptiste was excellent at telling us about the origins of the marble we were working with and gave us some inspiration on what to create if we needed it. He offered support and advice throughout, but really let us be independent and creative with our projects. It is such a gorgeous site and the perfect place to see the sunset !! definitely worth the money for a unique experience and getting to create and keep your own piece of art out of marble !! Memories for a life time :)
Hands on, fun, local experience
