York Stone Carving Festival

Stonemasons take part in a stone carving festival at York Minster on August 19, 2018 in York, England.

More than seventy craftspeople took part in the festival with participants travelling from a range of countries including Germany, Norway and Cyprus, as well as locations across the UK. The masons spent two days carving on the theme ‘All creatures great and small’, with the finished pieces due to be auctioned at the end of the festival.

Funds raised from then event will be reinvested in maintaining the 800-year-old cathedral.
