Join stonemason Lily Marsh in a small group setting to learn about stonemason’s marks, a custom that dates back to the 11th Century. In this workshop you will learn how to design and carve your very own stonemason’s mark.

Mason’s marks were a symbol used by stonemasons to identify their work, these marks were anything from the simple to the downright elaborate!

The session starts with providing a basic introduction to the limestone and hand tools being used as well as providing some background on the history of mason’s marks.

Participants will then be given the chance to design and carve their own marks.

The workshop will last for 1.5 hours and will include up to six participants.
