Applied Craft Workshops

An intensive, six-day workshop in cutting fine lettering in stone.

The focus will be equally on tools and cutting technique, and essential drawing skills. The object of the course is to give students a firm foundation in letter carving in stone. Through drawing and carving, the students begin to understand the structure of letter forms and the relationship between these two fundamental aspects of fine lettercutting. The course will also cover the beginnings of a sense of good spacing and touch on laying out an inscription. Stone and all tools will be provided.

Tutor Robbie Schneider studied sculpture at Camberwell and Byam Shaw Art Schools in London and later specialized in lettering. He is a full member of Letter Exchange and of the Scottish Lettercutters Association and an elected member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors. Robbie exhibits widely and does many public and private commissions. His work can be found throughout Britain, from Kent in the South to Shetland in the far North. Robbie works primarily in stone but he also works in wood, metals and other materials.

£515 includes delicious, home-made lunch each day, all materials and tools.  If you wish to purchase your stone at the end of the course, this costs a further £35.
