The Course

Learn the basic techniques involved in letter carving in wood. During this one day course, Sarah will take you through the various elements required to carve lettering in a basic font in Limewood using traditional carving tools. After lunch, you’ll then have the opportunity to either carve some initials or a small sign of your choice to take home with you.

The Tutor
