These professionally taught three day letter cutting courses are an excellent introduction to inscribing letters into stone. Designed to dispel the idea that letter cutting in stone is difficult, we take a practical, hands-on approach from the start.
During the course you'll be introduced to the basics of both classical and contemporary letter forms by means of practising the basic constructs of lettering. With an understanding of how letters are formed with a dummy and chisel, you'll then move forward to creating a simple inscription, from initial design and setting out, through to cutting the letters.
The lettering courses are suitable for all levels of ability, whether you're a complete novice with a passion to learn, or a seasoned professional looking to expand your skill set. The stone used for the courses is a local Lincolnshire limestone, which is ideal for letter cutting, and is included in the course price. The only things you'll need to bring are clothes suitable to work in, and footwear suitable for a workshop environment.
Everyone who has attended the courses has achieved excellent results, and taken away with them fantastic pieces of work; testimony to the professional level of instruction given throughout.
