Maine School of Masonry in the Irregular
FARMINGTON — Maine School of Masonry students completed a community project at Living Waters Assembly of God on the Wilton Road.
Students helped design and build a beautiful brick sign planter. The school’s instructor Steve “Mitch” Mitchell added the three cross design. Morin Bricks of Auburn donated the bricks that were used for the sign.
Six students from the school spent three days building the sign and the fourth day cleaning the bricks. These types of projects allow the students to work in the community and use materials that they are learning about using in school.
There are currently six students enrolled in the Masonry School this year, there are three efficiency apartments that house students from Maine to Texas. The program is designed for the students to develop skills and knowledge in the brick, block and stone masonry fields; trades that provide employment. The students develop skills through lab projects, classroom instruction and community involvement projects.
There is a great demand for masons in the United States and around the world; these students will be able to use their skills in a variety of work settings. To find out more about the masonry school or courses, visit masonryschool.org.
