Katherine Worthington

Stone Carver & Sculptor


THE ART WORKERS GUILD - 6 Queen Square, London, WC1N 3AT


Katherine was elected a member of the Art Workers Guild in 2007 for her attributes in stone carving. She was proposed by the renowned stone carver Dick Reid OBE and former master of the Art Workers Guild and seconded by Assheton Gorton who was an English production designer and nominated for an Academy Award for the film The French Lieutenant's Woman. 


The Guild is a society of artists, craftsmen and designers with a common interest in the interaction, development and distribution of creative skills. It represents a variety of views on design and stands for authenticity (irrespective of political and stylistic ideology) in a world increasingly uncertain about what is real. Founded originally in the 1880's by a group of English architects associated with the ideas of William Morris and the leading personalities of the Arts and Crafts movement.

From the Art Workers Guild website "Many of its current members uphold long-established traditions of workmanship and a desire to contribute to the community. The Guild believes that art, craft and design should be invigorating and positive in outlook, at a time when much art remains alienating and self-indulgent. These principles are manifest in the individual work of the members and are spread through teaching, research, publication and exhibitions. The Guild consists of roughly 100 architects and 250 makers, bound by good craftsmanship and design rather than by style".
