Women’s International Stone Alliance – WISA

Posted in WISA

During the last three years WISA has been working with Master Craftsman and accomplished designer, David Griffiths to create a portfolio of edifice designs incorporating intimate spaces, that challenge perspectives and celebrate the strengths and capabilities of women in a culturally specific way. These edifice are to be built by appropriately skilled WISA teams in various locations worldwide, initially in England, Australia, Ireland, USA and Italy. This will provide women with the rare opportunity to travel and work with other women within the traditional stone trades.


WISA is very proud to announce that they have recently been awarded the honour of building a monument to Anne Lister (Gentleman Jack) at Shibden Hall in Halifax, UK. Work has commenced on a fitting design for this construction and it is hoped that construction can occur during 2022, Covid permitting.

WISA also hopes to facilitate a design and construction competition for women during 2022, so if this is something that interests you – watch this space!

"Walling to me is wholly engaging. It’s my gym, my art class, my mindfulness session and my trip to the country all rolled into one. It requires time, precision and order, patience, resilience, and attention to detail. It connects the past with the future and delivers a beautiful, sustainable structure and unrivalled sense of pride and satisfaction".
