About the Course

Letter carving is a joyful way to spend time, and a great skill to acquire. Over a weekend we will learn a range of techniques, and everyone will get a chance to carve a name plate for their house, bedroom or office door.

We start the weekend with some basic chisel techniques before talking about letter shapes and layout. Quite quickly we'll move into working on an individual carving on a piece of Oak.

At the end of the weekend, our resident expert in gilding and finishing techniques will teach everyone how to apply gold leaf to their work.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials, tools and safety equipment are included. We'll also provide a simple but delicious lunch each day you are with us.

You'll be able to leave with a name board or sign of your own.
