A day long workshop, offering both practical and theoretical tuition.
The day will begin with coffee, and will include a tour of the Cathedral and Spire to demonstrate the restoration that has already taken place. Workshop Foreman Andrew Ramsay will talk about the theory of stonemasonry, and then give the participants some practical instruction on banker work as in the photograph shown.
Please wear old clothes and hard boots. Goggles and face masks will be provided. Please also bring a packed lunch. Hot coffee and tea available all day.
Andrew Ramsay trained and worked at Edinburgh Castle, and has been Foreman of the Workshop at the Cathedral for over 25 years.
The photograph shows our female apprentice hard at work. She will also be on hand on 21 February.
