Supporting Our Craft  

True to its origins, the Masons’ Company supports the craft of stonemasonry in a variety of ways.


It provides financial support for apprentice stonemasons and trainee stone carvers wishing to further their knowledge and skills at approved colleges. 


It provides advice for stonemasons and stone carvers through the members of its Training Committee who regularly visit the Building Crafts College and The City and Guilds of London Art School.


It has set up an The Duke of Gloucester Awards to recognise excellence in the  craft of stonemasonry.


It is represented on the Council of the City & Guilds of London Institute which is the premier awarding body for vocational qualifications in this country and around the world.


The Masons’ Company is actively supporting the Cathedrals Workshop Fellowship, which is promoting the exchange of apprentices and craftsmen between cathedrals to increase the body of knowledge and skills for this important conservation work.
