Letter carving demonstration with Thomas Sargeant at the Goldsmiths' Centre


As part of our London Craft Week programme, join us at the Goldsmiths’ Centre for this live demonstration. Stone carver, letter cutter and designer Thomas Sargeant will reveal how artists select stone for its different properties and uses, how an artwork is planned, the process for selecting appropriate tools and hand lettering and carving techniques. Thomas is one of the letter carvers affiliated to the Lettering Arts Trust.

Thomas’ formal apprenticeship was funded through the Lettering Arts Trust between 2013-2015. In 2015 he was awarded a training scholarship from The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust. His clients include St. Paul’s Cathedral and The Oscar Wilde Society.

Tickets cost £15 which includes a glass of wine and are available here:
