In this two-day course you will be introduced to the art of letter-carving in wood and discover the different skills and techniques involved, as well as learning about the tools you will be using. The course will begin with you carving a significant date in roman numerals and then progressing onto an A4 plaque or house sign. As letter-carving involves the use of very sharp tools (part of the course will cover sharpening) please do not sign up for this course if you are unable to handle sharp tools safely!
Stephen Stokes has been teaching letter-carving full-time for the last seven years, based at his Bodden Cross Studios in Somerset. A career in media took him all over the world, each time returning to the workshop. His work now appears in diverse locations around the world. “My greatest pleasure is witnessing the flame lit in a soul when working with their hands and realising they have a creative talent.”
