Lettering & Commemorative Arts
The Lettering & Commemorative Arts Trust is encouraging Britain’s long tradition of lettercarving in stone, slate and wood to flourish through our Apprenticeship and Journeyman Schemes, our programme of exhibitions at the Lettering Arts Centre, Snape Maltings, national Lettercarving workshops, The Art & Memory Collection, and various illustrated publications. We have helped and advised over five thousand people across the British Isles and also overseas, with the commissioning of commemorative works and well designed, unique memorials for churchyard, cemetery, private garden or public space. Please see our commissioning website www.memorialsbyartists.co.uk
The Lettering Arts Centre GALLERY & SHOP at Snape Maltings is open Fridays – Mondays, including bank holidays 11am – 5pm for innovative works of art and unique items for the home or special occasions.
