Speaking Engagements

Stephen has engaged audiences at a range of speaking events for public, private and charitable organisations over the years and is able to educate, inspire and entertain people of diverse backgrounds, from total newcomers to the craft through to professionals and post-graduates.

Stephen is delighted to share the wealth of knowledge, expertise and fascinating experiences that he has collected over forty years experience in the craft; from specialist education in a City of London Guild school along a colourful craft ‘journey’ that took him on foot all over Europe and culminated in South Africa, through to his illustrious international career as ‘Court Mason’ to the world’s royalty and nobility.  

Stephen holds the position of ‘Remembrancer’ for one of his Guilds and, as such, is pleased to be questioned on the lesser-known and more specialist fields of interest within stonemasonry and its associated history and culture.  Seminars may be curated more specifically for audiences with niche interests or to complement a specialist event.  Previous seminars have covered such diverse topics as:

  • the civil arts as applied to craft training,
  • harmonic proportion,
  • the mechanics and physicality of the practice of stonemasonry,
  • the enhancement of wellbeing through craft practice and the crafted environment,
  • the theory of craftsmanship,
  • team management and education within crafts,
  • the social and political history of stonemasonry and stonemasons’ guilds.
