One of the aims of the Lettering Arts Trust is to keep the art of letter carving alive. It’s why we offer a range of opportunities for people interested in exploring letter carving more intensively.
Our two-year apprenticeships offer people the rare opportunity to work and learn alongside acknowledged masters of letter carving. This is real life experience in a working studio.
Our Journeyman scheme gives experienced students who want to focus on improving a specific area of their craft, training for six to eight weeks under the guidance of a master letter carver.
The harriet frazer bursary
Our bursary provides funds for training, tools or equipment to help people taking their first steps in a letter carving career. It also helps established letter carvers further their careers.
