In addition participants may form sculptures with clay, using self made attrezzi (tools) of olive wood, fit to their necessities.

Wolfgang Sandt is a stonemason, sculptor and painter with 20 years of teaching experience. He has participated at numerous international symposia and exhibitions. He creates abstract sculptures of translucent marble as well as representational art work. He carves bowls, basins and other artistic objects for daily use out of marble and other stones.
Participants of the sculpting class are inspired by the ancient cultural tradition of Umbria. Lake Trasimeno lies in the heart land of Etruscan culture: one can discover the antique roots of European sculpting, ceramics and painting.
Etruscan tomb sites and museums with prehistoric, Etruscan and Roman artworks can be visited in the vicinity. Or join us for an art trip to an exhibition of contemporary sculpture.
During the workshop one can discover unknown talents inside oneself. Stone sculpting is less difficult than most people might think. And it surely is great fun.
