Joe Milne, winner of stone carving competitions and a draughtsmanship prize during his training, is currently on the Advanced Stonemasonry Apprenticeship at Exeter Cathedral.

He has learned to work multiple, complex stones and produce accurate drawings, moulds and intricate carvings, most recently a grotesque beast head for one of the Cathedral turrets. Joe is about to embark on the Professional Development Diploma in Historic Building Conservation and Repair at West Dean College under the tutelage of leading practitioners.

“This would be beyond my reach on an apprentice wage, but with the QEST HCA Scholarship covering my fees for the ten Building Conservation Masterclasses, I can improve my skills in stonemasonry, stonework conservation and related crafts essential for care of the Cathedral.”
