Celebrating Craft

Over the Easter weekend of 2018, several apprentices and the Master of The Guild exhibited at the Makers’ Month event at The Forum in Norwich amongst several other diverse craft groups.

Our stand on the forecourt of The Forum was very popular over the weekend, with hundreds of visitors coming to chat to us about our Guild, the techniques we were demonstrating and the carving pieces we had on display. Visitors spoke to us about other traditional crafts they have seen demonstrated (notably brilliant cutting in glass), techniques with hand tools, the theory of design and the typical temperament of stonemasons, prompting some lively discussions. It was a fantastic opportunity for us to educate a wider audience of inquisitive local people about our craft and our Guild and our thanks go to The Forum team for hosting this event.
