Craftworks 2017

2-day Heritage Stone Masonry Event: Session 1

Set out, carve and embellish your own ovolo section from soft limestone and learn the art of indenting and plastic repair with direction and guidance from expert master carver Nick Roberson.

This is a unique opportunity for an intensive hands-on learning experience in Manchester. The event is perfect for architects and other professionals with a keen interest in heritage and conservation stonework

Over two sessions lasting a total of 9 hours you will get your hands dirty using practical craft skills to enrich your knowledge.



• Ticket price – £21.95 (for both sessions)

• Very limited ticket availability

Both sessions are part of one Craftworks event and attendance at session #1 is critical for advancing on to session #2; therefore tickets are sold as a pair and the ticket price is inclusive of both sessions.
