ShamROCK founder and director, Shane Patrick Campbell expressed a keen interest in the craft from an early age, and through his teen years, fulfilled a traditional apprenticeship, mentored by seasoned craftsman in his native home of Ireland. This stretch of education and training covered all aspects and mediums of natural stone, suited to varying purposes such as the practical, aesthetic and structural. He was able to excel during this time and immediately earned himself a permanent position once fully qualified, allowing him to continue gaining knowledge through his experiences across the country.
Shane migrated to Australia almost a decade ago bringing the traditional skills and practices that sees stone structures in Ireland lasting centuries, as well as an innovative edge that produces a ‘timeless look’ when working on contemporary projects and established projects alike. Throughout his time in Australia, Shane’s workmanship and practised expertise has landed him opportunities to work on several prestigious projects such as the award-winning National Arboretum, alongside highly esteemed architects, builders and tradespeople.
