We are delighted to launch our ninth apprenticeship – the search is on for a young artist keen to learn this specialist craft and its intricate techniques.
Generously funded by the writer Mirabel Cecil and named the Lettering Arts Trust Sebastian Walker Apprenticeship in remembrance of her brother, the apprenticeship will be from early 2018 and continue for two years. The apprenticeship commemorates Mrs Cecil’s brother, Sebastian Walker, 1942 – 1991. Sebastian was a pioneering publisher of childrens’ books and his company, Walker Books, with its celebrated logo of a bear holding a shining candle, is recognised the world over.
If you are interested in embarking on a two year lettering journey; are willing to possibly relocate to anywhere in the UK; are a UK resident and intend to continue working in the UK after the apprenticeship; have enthusiasm and stamina, please let us know via email if you would like to go on our interested list – more in-depth details will be requested from mid-November.
