Kelly Murray- Stonemasonry Bursary Student (Women in Heritage construction and Building our Heritage)

Qualification achieved - L3 NVQ Diploma in Heritage Skills (Construction)- Mason

Kelly first came to the Tywi Centre in 2015 as part of the group of 10 women on the Women in Heritage Construction element of the Building our Heritage bursary programme. 

She then successfully won a place as a stonemason on the bursary programme and came away with an NVQ3 in Stonemasonry.  She had placements with Coe Stone, based in Carmarthenshire.

Kelly says . . .

The WiHC course was an excellent introduction to heritage construction, learning about conservation principles and sampling different trades.

The NVQ3 course was a great opportunity to work on different projects across Wales and develop masonry skills. It furthered my interest in working in the heritage sector and exposed the variety of opportunities available within the industry.
