Master Craftsman Certificate

In February 2104, at a reception in Carpenter’s Hall in the City of London, Tim Crawley was awarded the prestigious Master Craftsman Certificate by the  Livery Company Skills Council and Worshipful Company of Masons, which was presented by the Lord Mayor.

For the first time, stone carvers and masons have been among those to receive Master Craftsman Certificates as part of a scheme organized by the Livery Companies of the City of London, the contemporary incarnations of the Medieval Craft Guilds.

The Master Craftsman scheme started in 2001 and is designed to encourage career progression in chosen crafts. The Livery companies work in partnership with the City & Guilds of London Institute to encourage the pursuit of excellence in vocational skills and training.

This year, 10 Livery Companies put forward candidates for the Masters Certificates – four of them, like the Masons’ Company, had nominated candidates for the first time. This demonstrates the increasing importance being placed on the support of the crafts they represent by the Livery Companies.

capacity of mentor to those pursuing a career in stonemasonry in order that they may benefit from the recipients’ considerable experience and achievements, each was presented with a certificate signed by The Master, the Lord Mayor, the Chairman of the Council of the City and Guilds of London and the President of Stone Federation GB.
