Sculpt an animal from the ancient myths
In ancient Greek history, there was a deep bond between humans and animals. They became symbols, children's toys and played central roles in fairy tales. In mythology, human souls were trapped inside animals under the curse of the gods. Many ancient Greek artists used copper, marble, clay and gold to illustrate these minimal and, at the same time, perfect animal forms. As one of the admirers of this type of art, I would like to invite you on a journey to this magical world through the art of clay sculpture. The workshop will start with a brief reference to the animals and their symbolism in ancient Greece. Then, I will show you my way to create animal forms. You can eventually choose and make your own animal creature and take it back home. The clay animal needs to dry 12-24hours . You can receive the creations after the end of the experience. You are provided with a package (box) that includes the sculpture on a base plus a kit to complete it. So on the shelf of souvenirs (memories) from the country you visited you will have a complete sculpture of your own hands. Or post it to your home address (with an additional cost). The 2hours, workshop take place under the sacred rock of the Acropolis. Also two wonderful cats live together in the workshop. For any further clarification or availability please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you
