Marcia Bennett Male

2001 QEST Scholar - Stone Carving & Lettering

Marcia works as a freelance stone carver, letter cutter and mason who works out of her own workshop in Sydenham, London. A QEST Scholarship supported her during a full time stone masonry course at the Building Craft College in Stratford East. Having already completed the architectural stone carving and letter cutting course at The City & Guilds of London Art School in Kennington and then gone on to work in the USA, she was keen to expand her knowledge of stone masonry.

Marcia has subsequently worked for The Dulwich Picture Gallery, Stowe School, Wentworth Castle in South Yorkshire, Westminster Abbey and Cathedral Works Organisation. She continues to teach as she has done for the last ten years, stone carving at The British Museum and at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
