Do I need to buy my own tools for Lettercarving workshops?

No, not at all. All tools – chisels and dummies, will be available for you to use at your workshop. If you have your own tools and would like to bring them along, please do.

Is there anything essential that I need to bring along to a Lettercarving workshop?

Apart from yourself, you will need to ensure you wear heavy boots; steel toe caps are preferable. We can advise you of suppliers if needed.

Are there any other tools I need to bring?

If you are coming along to a Calligraphy for Lettercarvers with Gaynor Goffe or Drawn Lettering workshop with Tom Perkins, there are some stationery items that would be wise to bring.  An A3 Goldline Layout pad, HB pencil (or 2), steel rule and set square. You will be given a material list for your workshop when you book a place.

Can I bring along my own project?

Yes, you are very welcome to bring along your own project for advice and guidance. Let the tutor know you are bringing your own stone beforehand, so he knows not to prepare a stone for you.

Can I purchase stone at the workshop?

Yes, the cost of the stone is generally between £5 and £25 depending on the size. AT the Cambridge workshop, you can also purchase tools. A man in a van generally visits on the last day of the workshop.

Can I pay the workshop fee by standing order?

Yes, we have a standing order form. Generally payment can be made over an 8 month period.

How can I pay for a workshop?

Workshop fees can be paid by bank transfer, cheque (made payable to The Lettering and Commemorative Arts Trust), credit or debit card over the phone or at the Lettering Arts Centre, standing order or you can purchase Gift Vouchers.
