Learn to carve stone with a sculptor

Lyon, France

Experience hosted by Aurélie

3 hours
Includes drinks, equipment
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English, French

What you'll do

No stone carving experience is required. In my workshop, I will explain the sculpture process in direct carving and guide you at every step. You will begin by choosing one of the proposed themes, and then you will clear the major lines of the sculpture. I will show you how to turn a block into a living sculpture, using different techniques and tools. If you wish, I can take beautiful pictures of you working on your sculpture.

Practicing sculpture since 1989, I have carved many types of stone, and my passion has only grown. In addition to my creations, I attend many symposiums around the world and share my passion with other practitioners. Doing an experience with you is a wonderful way to share my passion.

Where you'll be

My workshop is located in rue Juiverie, one of the oldest streets in the heart of Old Lyon—where the famous Nostradamus lived. Near my workshop are all forms of transportation—bus, metro, and trains.

Mme nous attendais, et nous a indiqué où poser nos affaires et prendre une blouse au même endroit. Ensuite nous a été fourni un petit bloc de pierre (à choisir entre une pierre blanche, pas d'information sur sa nature ou bien un morceau de Ciporex). Une place sur l'établit nous à été dégagée, au milieu des autres "élèves" habitués de l'atelier (en sous-sol, accessible par un petit escalier en colimaçon). Mme nous a bien laissés prendre les outils qui étaient sur la table, dans une grande autonomie, nous indiquant que nous pouvions reproduire un visage de femme (genre Modigliani). "Commencez à tracer les contours au crayon, puis vous repassez dessus ensuite" (pas d'indication des noms des différents outils) puis Mme continuait d'interagir avec d'autres personnes venues l'interviewer ou des habitués, de temps en temps revenait voir nos œuvres en les considérant sous SON angle de vue, unique et certainement expérimenté. Pas de place à interprétation personnelle, mieux vaut rester à l'écoute de Mme. Quelques interactions avec une personne bienveillante du groupe d'habitués, qui a su nous rassurer et nous encourager, alors que l'une de nos sculptures a été reprise (dans nos mains, bon-gré mal-gré) par Mme alors que nous ne le souhaitions pas. Mme gouverne et nous vous recommandons d'être bien à son écoute, peu de place aux autres personnalités. Dommage, il y avait quelques conseils qui "sonnaient bien", le tout était peut-être de le dire avec un peu d'indulgence pour les novices. Expérience à refaire OUI, mais ailleurs pour comparer et parce que ça nous a plus, la PIERRE.

Très chouette cours de sculpture, l'accompagnement que propose Aurélie permet vraiment d'avoir les bases pour appréhender la matière et la façonner. Merci encore pour cette jolie Initiation

It was my first time every sculpting stone but it didnt take me long to get into the groove. I was able to finish my piece without too much difficulty. Definitely recommend, even to those who are completely new to this

I was dubious about the experience when I walked in as you are joining her regular class. But within minutes she taught me a new way to make sculpture. Everyone in the class was welcoming, despite a bit of a language barrier. Art truly is universal and Aurélie was a great teacher!
