Stonemasonry Diploma Level 2
“I’ve always been interested in restoration and working with my hands. Stonemasonry suits me better because it presents me with a constant challenge. It requires a delicate touch and I really have to think about what I’m doing. It’s good to be working on a course that gives me the opportunity to hone my skills and hopefully progress to a career doing something I enjoy.”
