Soap Carving: Masons’ Marks

About Soap Carving: Masons’ Marks

Did you know that stonemasons carve symbols or 'marks' into the very stone they work with? Follow in the tradition of Scotland's stonemasons and try your hand at carving your very own mason's mark - into soap!

See our latest exhibition “The Scots Who Built The White House” to learn all about mason's marks.

Look at a special mason's log book which master stonemasons used to sign using their very own marks, and take inspiration to design and carve your own into soap.

Additional information: Workshops suitable for ages 5+. Parental/guardian supervision is required for the duration of the activity.

Please note: No need to book in advance, just drop in and have a go!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Soap Carving: Masons’ Marks are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
