From Mystery to Fascination

The assembled audience in the auditorium at The Forum, Norwich on 6th April, 2018, were promised ‘authentic memories from those who had undertaken the ancient tradition of the craftsman’s journey’ and they were rewarded not only with inspiring and honest accounts of the journeys of Master Stephen L’Normand and Friedrich Bader - stonemason and carpenter respectively – but with a selection of traditional journey-themed folk tales woven very colourfully by our very own Gleeman of The Guild, Dave Tonge. The attendees were given the opportunity to put questions to the speakers and their fascination with the unusual and untold world of the journeyman was evident in their curiosity and appreciative comments.

Thanks go to The Clerk of our Guild for developing and co-ordinating this seminar and to The Forum for, once again, playing host to us.
