About the course

This course is a week-long workshop aimed at initiating everyone to lettering.
Each student is guided individually according to their artistic and stylistic needs starting from the previously acquired level. Athar Jaber will be at your side, guiding you throughout the whole carving process.

For who

Whether you are a sculptor, stonemason, calligrapher or graphic designer, or a simple sculpture enthusiast, the course is designed for all levels.

For beginners, the course will provide the basic principles for carving letters on stone.
While, for those who already have some experience, the course will allow to refine the technique and carving skills through the development and realization of a specific design.

Where

Located in a very strategic area of the Valdichiana, the course will be held in Marciano della Chiana in a beautiful villa from the 1800s with rooms with en suite bathroom. The property is surrounded by a 2-hectare park. Located in a very quiet area, it has a large swimming pool.

The large spaces outdoors and inside the house allow you to maintain the necessary spacing rules in this emergency period.

Within a few minutes’ drive you can visit the characteristic Tuscan villages such as Cortona, Montepulciano, Lucignano or the cities of Arezzo, Siena.

Results

At the end of the course, you will have carved your first initials in stone, but more importantly, you will have gained all the knowledge necessary to continue practicing the art of letter carving on your own.
