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 is open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, including bank holidays 11am – 5pm. The Shop & Gallery close on Friday, 23 December and reopen in the Spring.
