Stonecarving 101

Stone carving is alive! If you thought that the tradition that gave us the pyramids, the Parthenon, and our own Cathedral had gone extinct... think again!

The Cathedral played a major role in keeping stone-carving alive in New York City when we resumed construction in 1979. Dozens of local men and women were trained by European master stonecarvers in the Cathedral Stoneyard.

Join us for a discussion and stonecarving demonstration with Chris Pellettieri, a Cathedral Artist in Residence and alumnus of the Cathedral Stoneyard. The chips will fly as he shows us the tools and techniques that he and his fellow Cathedral Builders have used to shape stone by hand for thousands of years.
