0002815: Successful fey mood does not elevate skill
I had a miner with no prior masonry skill get a fey mood, claim a mason's workshop, and create a nice lignite throne. Fine. But afterwards he had gained no masonry skill. He's not even a dabbling mason.
No tags attached.

Mining and Engraving are also moodable skills, and they use Mason workshop. He got mining experience probably.

I'm resolving this as I'm explaining it, so feel free to PM me on the forums if you need further info.

Mining is a moodable skill. People that get moods get it in their highest moodable skill, if they have one.

Your dude had mining as his highest moodable skill. So he got a mining mood. Since there's no workshop associated with mining - it's just a type of rock-working - it takes place in a Masonry Workshop, as you saw.

Once his artifact was finished he gained even more mining skill - he was probably already very high, though.
