See sculpture and letter carving at the Natural Stone Show
A new feature at this year's Natural Stone Show is the Sculptors' Studio, where some of the industry’s leading artists have been invited to exhibit examples of their work in a celebration of the best of British creativity, craftsmanship and design.
The artists involved include Mark Brooks of Artisan Memorials and Lois Anderson, two of the artist-letter carvers of The Lettering Arts Trust, and sculptors Carrie Horwood of Cat’s Eye Carving, Pippa Unwin of Mewstone Masonry and Jude Tucker.
The Lettering Arts Trust has created a niche for itself as a champion of the art of lettering and letter carving. It raises awareness of the art form and ensures that the role of the master craftsman and a rich lettering heritage is valued. Ensuring the continuum of these skills through a programme of education, apprenticeships and journeyman schemes, it holds a range of workshops across the country in artists’ studios.
The Lettering Arts Trust works with the most gifted artists in the UK - all peer-reviewed and selected by master letter carvers for the quality and originality of their designs - to help you find the right artist for your project. As a leading voice for promoting lettering to the public it brings the finest artists and the public together, engaging them through exhibitions, training programmes, and original commissions.
