Romance of the stone

On the Islands of Brac, Hvar and Korcula you can find rich layers of white and yellow limestone.This was the reason that nature itself  inspired the development of the craft of sculptor,especially on Island Brac. Development of a school for stone masonry courses was organised for the education of young men in the craft of Stonemasonry in 1906 in collaboration with the School of Crafts of Split,Pucisca and Selca. These organised courses of masonry were followed by exams in the art of masonry in early 1909.
