Charleston, SC, will be the site for Stonework Symposium 2004, which will take place from November 13 to 15. The Stone Foundation, in association with the American College of the Building Arts, will present the program. This is the fourth annual gathering of the stone “tribe” organized by the Stone Foundation, which will feature interesting and informative presentations by professional stonemasons (including Ian Cramb, author of “The Art of the Stonemason” and Patrick McAfee, author of “Irish Stone Walls” and “Stone Building”), stone artists, architects, historians and folklorists. There will also be demonstrations and a stone-building “event,” along with lively discourse. As in previous symposiums, Stonework in Architecture is a subject to be explored. The Stone Foundation is an AIA Approved Provider of Continuing Education Credits (AIA/CES # Z206).

Also offered is a Stonemasonry Workshop, covering the fundamentals and fine points of the craft, taught by a team of experienced masons. A Stonecarving Workship will feature relief carving taught by a traditionally trained Polish stonecarver. These workshops will run concurrently from November 9 to 19, with a break for the Symposium.
