Cathedral Workshop Fellowship

Working together for the future of our Cathedrals

Cathedrals WOrkshop FellowshipDeveloped in partnership with nine Cathedrals (Canterbury, Durham, Exeter, Gloucester, Lincoln, Salisbury, Winchester, Worcester and York Minster), the Cathedral’s Workshop Fellowship (CWF) was established in October 2006 and works in partnership with the University of Gloucestershire (UoG) to provide excellent training. 

The CWF has two purposes:

  • To standardise and promote the training of stonemason apprentices in English Cathedrals

Throughout the two year course, stonemasons will study:

  • Practical Conservation techniques
  • Stone Construction and geometry 
  • Architectural History and archaeology
  • Structural Engineering and fixing
  • Ornamental Carving

The CWF has a unique and successful programme focused on delivering accredited development training and education to post-apprentice stonemasons.
