Letter Carving and Gilding
Contact course provider
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.
