New perspectives for carvers – launching a stonemason training program in Lviv
22 May, 2017:
The Eberhard-Schöck-Stiftung and the Iwan Trush College of Decorative and Applied Art have signed a partnership agreement in Lviv. Together, they plan to launch a technical training program with a focus on restoration stonemasonry work in the city. In working with stone, the college currently focuses on carving and has a strong artistic orientation. The tremendous need for restoration in Lviv, given the innumerable architectural treasures found in just the facaded in the old town, requires more extensive technical skills and expertise in modern restauration techniques, however. Therefore, the current training program will be expanded and enhanced with these components.
