- Applied Craft Workshops
An intensive, six day workshop in cutting fine lettering in stone with Master Craftsman, Robbie Schneider. 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.
£550 - includes all materials AND your piece of stone (to take home at the end), plus delicious home-made lunches each day.
Accommodation at the Old Brewery is available.
