Welcome to MARBLE/marble, a place where stone carvers of all ages and abilities gather to create sculpture in a non-competitive, culturally diverse atmosphere of camaraderie and sharing. Get acquainted with artists from every corner of the globe—from India to Africa, Europe, and Asia while you learn to carve stone under the guidance of top-tier artists and a team of highly skilled support staff.
Symposium participants receive a block of beautiful Colorado Yule marble, a fully-equipped outdoor carving site in a spectacular setting, daily open-forum classes, demos and workshops, and unlimited use of symposium tools. Instructors are available throughout the workshop for one-on-one coaching, helping each participant tailor their own unique approach to stone carving.
Symposium grounds are located just outside the quaint town of Marble, Colorado. It’s a pristine mountain setting on the beautiful Crystal River where artists can find inspiration all around, especially in the blocks of Marble scattered throughout the area, remnants of the historic Marble Mill site.
There are three sessions offered on the same dates each year. Every session follows the same curriculum and is appropriate for every level of experience—from beginner to advanced. Choose the dates that work best for you and please feel free to come for more than one!
