Stuart Buckle Past Apprentice
Before I started the apprenticeship I was unsure which career path I wanted to take. I now work as a self-employed letter carver producing many kinds of commissions, including home and garden projects as well as memorials, plaques and signs. I run my own business doing a job that I thoroughly enjoy and cannot think of anything else I would want to do more.
