The MARBLE/marble Symposium has been sharing the art and joy of stone carving in a non-competitive, culturally diverse atmosphere of learning and sharing for over 30 years. Participants of any age and experience level are welcome, from first-timers to pros. The Symposium provides everything carvers need including marble, tools, workshops, demos and private instruction.
Whatever your artistic style, Mm has instructors who can help you achieve your vision. Meet artists from around the world while carving beautiful Colorado marble provided by Colorado Stone Quarries.
