Description

Beginners and Intermediate 3-day letter-carving workshop for up to eight people. For anyone with enthusiasm and a little patience. All tools and materials are provided, price includes delicious homemade baking and lunches (dietary requirements catered for). The course takes place at the delightful Broadrake Bunk Barn in the midst of the Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks. Indoor and outdoor spaces are available for learning and lunching alike: dramatic views, warm hospitality and excellent teaching at all levels. Students can enjoy learning a new craft or improving their skills in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

What's included in the price?

Introduction to traditional and contemporary lettering with an illustrated talk, followed by demonstration of how to draw letters, how to combine them in imaginative ways to make an exciting design. Teaching includes demonstrations of carving techniques, one-to-one guidance and group sessions from professional lettercarver Pip Hall, who has over 25 years' experience of teaching. Students can expect to carve a short word or even a phrase, depending on type of stone chosen, and the size of lettering - and many choose to invest in tools to complete their project at home.

FAQs

Yes, please email me if you would like to discuss anything to do with the course.

There is no need to turn up with anything prepared: some students do have a project in mind, and some even arrive with their chosen stone, but most get inspired by the stones I provide, and form ideas from the many examples of lettering we look at and learn from.

Yes! I can offer help with your project.
