Stone carving and family fun
Heritage Open Day: Watch skilled stonemasons from the Guild of St Stephen and St George at work and then, with their guidance, try carving for yourself if you wish. A family trail and craft activity for children (age range 5 to 12 years approx.) is also on offer. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about the craft of stone carving and how Bath Abbey is full of remarkable examples, much of which is around 500 years old. The Guild of St Stephen and St George trains young people in this skill through apprenticeships which take 5-7 years to complete.
The family trail and craft activity will encourage children to explore some beautiful designs and then create their own collage Tudor rose.
