If a man dwells on the past then he robs the present. But if he ignores the past he may rob the future. The seeds of our destiny are nurtured by the roots of our past.
A person who who works with his hands is called a labourer. A person who works with his hands and his head is called a craftsman. A person who works with his hands, head and heart is called an artist.

I would like to thank you for the high level of attention and quality of one-
Having a background in stonemasonry and conservation I had only picked up second
This allowed me to progress in clear incremental steps which both helped to build confidence each day and allowed me to move forward at a pace I was comfortable with. It also meant you could introduce some of the finer points relating to materials, tools and technique.
All this took place in a very well equipped workshop, backed up by comprehensive course notes, your ever ready guidance and knowledge of the craft of brick laying and supplemented by fantastic lunches and a steady supply of tea.
I look forward to using these skills on the 17th century building I am currently working on in the City of London and developing them in the future.
