Ce vei face

Come to my beautiful garden that has been in my family for generations where you will sit with me and create pebble stone mosaics as did the ancient peoples on this island. I will introduce you to the basic techniques of creating mosaics using natural pebbles of different colours made of marble, granite, and crystals from the island. Personally I take my inspiration form nature or from archaic motifs. I will provide a wooden frame and some ideas in which to create your each individual projects. I am an easy going guy, ask me anything you like. You can practice you Greek with me as well as the opportunity to improve my English.

I am a native islander born and raised in the village of Eggares, Naxos. I grew up farming as did my family for many generations. I realised early on I had a different calling, as if the ancient peoples were speaking to me through my hands or this information was encoded in my DNA. For over 30 years I have been working with wood carvings, marble sculpture, and mosaics, as well as architectural design with stone. I am completely self taught and use my instincts and self guidance to solve any problem.

Chrystos was born and grew up in Naxos. He is very local, loves his island and life around it. He transmits his happiness and creativity among his guests. It was a big pleasure to see his works and become part of his special world for a couple of hours!

Highlight of our trip to Naxos! Christos's farm is a beautiful and peaceful setting for the class, with marble sculptures, nature and cute bunnies. We really enjoyed Christos's warm hospitality - he greeted us with figs from his garden and made for us Greek coffee and fresh lemonade. Christos offered good instructions and it was lovely and meditative to make the mosaics and chat with Christos. Highly recommend for a break away from city life!

Christos and Maggie are amazing hosts. You get a feel for Naxos and the culture through them. Not only did we make memorable mosaics but the memories oftheir working farm will always remain with us. This was perfect for my 4 and 6 year old. They ate fresh fruit and vegetables from this trees and farm. Christos really helped us learn from the land by eating fresh oranges and strawberries that we picked. You can tell they really love to work with their hands and show and teach that to others. Theh provided yummy lemonade and wine! We will definitely be back. This is a must do to bring home authentic Greece memories!

This experience brought us to a really special place in Naxos: The garden close to a village where we did the Mosaic is full of creativity and surprising projects Christos and his wife are working on. Christos is a really wonderful person and you feel immediately comfortable with him. I really loved what he explained to us about his art and way of living. I found his view on life full of wisdom. I highly recommend this experience to everyone who wants to get to know a different and special side of Naxos and its people.

Very inspiring people and authentic place with beautiful sculptures. My kids enjoyed the mosaic experience and also could see other participants sculpting marble. I just wanted to share that the price may seem a bit expensive. I would suggest providing more choices of material (other natural materials like shells, pieces of wood...) and having it sorted out a bit in advance, with the option of sorting the stones if people want to. giving some explanations about where it comes from would also be interesting.
