Sculpture Training Program

Stone-sculpting is an ancient art that has characterized the architectural culture of the region for centuries, but has fallen prey to modern developments in construction industry.As part of our restoration works, the few available stone-sculpting masters in the Gaziantep-Urfa region were recruited to produce replicas of ancient pieces and train younger apprentices to specialize in sculpting for restoration purposes in archaeological sites.

This program seeks to contribute not only to the revival of a dying craft, but also to meeting the demand for qualified craftsmen in restoration works in Turkey.
