Verrocchio Arts Centre, Tuscany Italy


Title1 Selected

Verrocchio Arts Centre, Italy.

I spent two weeks at the centre in Casole d’Elsa, a fortified hill town in Tuscany near Siena, under the guidance of a sculptor, Nigel Konstan. It was a wonderful retreat where I carved Durox (cement) and Alabaster for the first time. I also attended life classes to essentially inform my alabaster carving of the ‘Sleeping’ figure. As this was my sabbatical from teaching, I was trying to retrieve my excitement for being a student again and revisiting the joy and rigour of life class. The course was totally fulfilling - beautiful surroundings, great people to work and socialise with, and to cap it all I did some ‘not bad’ work!
