The Lettering Arts Trust is a charity dedicated to the fostering of an age-old art. For centuries, human beings have felt  the need to mark-make. This urge continues today and we are thrilled to play a part in its future. Mark-making is all around us - in new public works commemorating great lives or momentous events, through to statements spray-painted as graffiti.

We would love to welcome you to enjoy the many forms of the art and perhaps participate in a workshop. Lettering is alive and we celebrate its many forms. We hope you too will enjoy it, either by visiting one of our exhibitions, taking home a work from our gallery shop, or even working with one of our artists on a special piece. As a charity we rely on outside support and value your interest and involvement in whatever form it takes.
