HES putting their heads together

Apprentices and staff from Historic Environment Scotland (HES) literally put their heads together at Stirling Campus recently, to try to win the chance to have their stone masonry work used as an interactive exhibit at the Engine Shed project in Stirling.

Acting CEO and Director of Conservation at HES Dr David Mitchell, Michelle De Bruin from Hutton Stone and her assistant Jo Crossland, visited the campus on Friday 17 June to judge the 10 stone heads created by the 10 apprentices and Stonemasons who came from as far a-field as Elgin and Edinburgh on the day.

The winners on the day were Megan Crawford (Apprentice Blackness Castle)  Lindsay Vaughan (Works Manager Blackness Castle) & Jack Ogilvie (Stonemason Edinburgh Castle) and their stone heads will be rotated on display for the Engine Shed's interactive digital scanning exhibition.

Chuck Jones, Training Manager at Forth Valley College's HES stone masonry training workshops, said:

"There was a great variation in designs from modern - I think there was a Minion in there somewhere - to classical, and the high standards to which our apprentices are working to. We are very proud of them all."
