NEOCHORI, NYDRI 07/08 – 12/08


The renowned craftsman of the stone “Mastro – Manolis” returns for the second time to the island of Lefkada.

Within a week, participants will have the opportunity to learn  the basic ways of working with stone, how to prepare their joints and what basic tools to use. Ultimately aiming to be able to continue or start their own construction after the end of the seminar with guaranteed success!

The practice will take place in a privately owned estate in the small traditional village of  Katouna, seven kilometers from the city of Lefkada where we will all build single-faced walls, terraces, deserts, benches. Also we will spend some time in Neochori village building a stove bakery.

Practical and theoretical tips by Mastro – Manolis, on various issues such as the foundation of plastering will help us to solve all the questions and fill with new ideas and inspiration for work.

If you have an appetite for getting to know the natural way of building and at the same time visit the beaches of Lefkada then we are here to do this together!
