The Stone Hub

The scope and ambition of the stone industry continues to grow in the UK, so to complement Stone Gallery we will again be producing the Stone Hub, a stage dedicated to presentations and debates centered around stone. Architects and designers will be presenting their most recent projects and passing on their knowledge to their colleagues.

For SDS17's Stone Gallery, we asked Tile & Stone Journal Editor, Joe Simpson, to call on his contacts to share their technical expertise. He curated an inspirational and educational programme running all day on Thursday 9, February that you can see below.

Sign up for our newsletter to be the first to hear about the 2018 line-up.
