Cruickshank Stonemasons are now offering the opportunity to learn more about stonemasonry and gain some basic stonemasonry skills.

Starting in March/April 2018 (dates to be confirmed) we are looking to introduce classes where you can come along and learn the craft of stonemasonry.

Perhaps you are doing a self-build and want to learn how to repair and repoint walling using line mortars. Maybe you are a school leaver who can’t decide what you want to do when you leave, or perhaps you just want to try a new hobby.

The classes will cover stone cutting, walling and repointing works using lime mortar. Class durations will vary depending on the number of people interested.

Evening and day classes including Saturday mornings may be an option, again depending on interest.
