About Alnassar: Special guest teacher Alnassar was born in Syria. He lives and works in Carrara, Italy among the white Michelangelo marble quarries, where he teaches sculpture courses and works on small and monumental sculptures. His works have been shown in individual and group exhibitions internationally. Visit Alnassar’s website here.

Please note, that these workshops are open to any skill level, but carving marble for 5 or 10 days, will be physically straining and tiring, especially if it is a warm January. Please think about your physical capabilities before booking into a workshop.
