About
My journey starts over 20 years ago in the countryside outside my hometown in Indiana where I apprenticed with a local limestone sculptor C. R. Schiefer. After working as a hobby for many years I had to the apportunity to travel to Tinos Island for marble carving workshops to learn the traditional techniques. I spent almost 2 years on the islnad! In 1010 it was appearent to move on and that is when I disovered Naxos where I started a familly and discovered that I love teaching.

I had an amazing time! Maggie was an excellent teacher, she explained how to use each tool and demonstrated the techniques so that it was easy for us to follow. She helped me draw a design I liked and showed me how best to carve it out. Truly an amazing experience, highly recommend!

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.

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!

We were very much looking forward to this "one of a kind" experience on our once in a lifetime visit to naxos. The host "overbooked", which probably means accepted a large group instead of our small one, and cancelled with only two hours notice which wrecked the day because we had cut short other things to do this. This is rude behaviour of any service provider. Travel plans did not permit rescheduling.

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.

We typically schedule a cooking class when we travel, but we decided to do something different and we are so glad we did! This was such a fun experience and Maggie was a great teacher who introduced us to this challenging skill.

We (family of 4) unexpectedly heard about this activity from individuals around our hotel pool. We thought "why not!" This activity included transportation to/from the location which was a unique area off the beaten path. We met the lovely Maggie who showed us to our "stations". We started by picking our stone to work with and then we practiced with the tools on a larger marble block. Maggie provided tea and water for us. It's harder than you think carving marble! Much appreciation to the masters! Maggie was there to help the entire time and we left with an amazing souvenir! When it was time to leave, Maggie called the transportation for us (about 30mins out) and set up a lovely meal of traditional greek foods and local wine. Such a treat! We would definitely recommend!

We went as a group of 5 from a sail trip. Maggie and Dimetrious were wonderful and we had a ball. A great experience

Both Maggie and Dimitri were such great hosts and Maggie did a such a fabulous job of instructing, educating and assisting us that we all came away both appreciating her talent and feeling great about our own modest efforts.

I always look for unique experiences that I can't do at home, and this may have topped all others. I learned about the marble and the tools used to manipulate it, and Maggie is a knowledgeable and welcoming instructor.
