This skill has been part of human expression for thousands of years and much of what we know of ancient civilisations stems from the study of carvings and inscriptions left by our forefathers. The process of carving letters in stone is a highly satisfying activity and can be used to convey our inner thoughts as well as recording facts or commemorating a loved one.
It cannot easily be erased and therefore could be described as an act of creating a little piece of history to hand on to our children.
Our lettercutting courses are held over afternoons, evenings, Saturday mornings, weekends and five days in order to offer something for all.
Experiential work is also encouraged.
See a video of Helen Mary Skelton demonstrating lettercutting.
