Steffan Lomax

2019 QEST Kirby Laing Foundation Scholar - Stone Carving

Having developed his stonemasonry skills as a banker mason, Steffan is currently attending City and Guilds of London Art School in order to obtain a BA in Historic Carving:  Architectural Stone. Here he will learn the skills and historical context to create his own architectural pieces, as well as contribute to the restoration of buildings in the UK. QEST Scholarship funding has enabled him to undertake the course, without which this would not have been possible. Steffan has also recently completed the Traditional Building Skills Programme with The Prince’s Foundation and QEST, which included live build projects at Dumfries House, Hillsborough Castle and Highgrove and gave him valuable on site experience.

I aim to achieve the highest standard of work within my chosen field of stonemasonry.
