Learn to carve stone in Athar Jaber’s personal studio under his attentive eye.
The weekend classes cover all aspects of stone carving for all skill levels.

Every other weekend, Athar Jaber and his studio are available for private classes to no more than 4 students. This low student to teacher ratio will allow to provide the required attention to each student’s ambition and skill level.

The studio is equipped with plenty of plaster casts to copy from. They range from architectural & ornamental carving to figurative stone sculpture as well as letter carving. But you are more than welcome to bring your own ideas along so that we can help you realise them in stone.

Weekend classes cost 250 per person. Everything you need to produce your carved piece such as tools, safety equipment & space will be provided, as well as Athar Jaber’s personal guidance. For exercises such as letter carving and small reliefs, the stone will be provided as well. For larger projects, a particular stone can be provided at an additional fee.

After only one weekend, you will leave with the basic skills & knowledge needed to continue carving. Once you have completed a course, Athar Jaber will be further available to give you advice & guidance on sourcing of tools, stone, etc.
