Made by Film Australia 1984. Directed by Paul Humfress. Episode 2 of this informative series about specialised and rare crafts and skills. Weathered stonework at the Sydney Technical College, built in 1891, is being restored and, where necessary, replaced. The greystone needed comes from Wondabyne Quarry. Stonemason George Proudman explains the process of restoration, from choosing the stone and tools required, to the methods used for fitting replacement stone.

Watch some amazing footage of stonemasons at work on the Sydney GPO in 1942.
