The Irish Stone Workers Alliance: Mission Statement

We are concerned with the protection and promotion of traditional stone masonry skills, some of which are highly artistic, and to a large extent dying. We provide opportunities, networks and information for stone workers by facilitating innovative and collaborative projects, especially in stone carving, sculpting and letter cutting.

We maintain high standards of craftsmanship and good practice in all areas of governance. We aim to engage  consistently with a wide variety of people, to keep our art form alive, at home ad overseas.  Education is a large part of our ethos.  We provide organisational benefits and leadership for the sector and are currently the only existing umbrella group for the various disciplines in stone craft throughout all of Ireland.

We aim to inspire communities to be part of our projects.
