Letter Carving in Wood

7th September - 12th October 10:00am - 12:00pm

Led by Stephen Stokes of Bodden Cross Studio, a letter carving professional for the last six years, this course introduces you to the tools and techniques of letter carving in wood. 


You will begin by carving your year of birth, or another date important to you, in Roman numerals. You will then go on to explore the wonders of your 26 new friends, the letters of the alphabet. 
 
By the end of the course you will have begun your own project of carving a sign in a typeface of your own choosing.
 

6-week course: Fridays, 7th September to 12th October, 10am - 12pm
£95
Stable Yard Room
Includes tea and coffee, and a 10% discount voucher for The Bishop’s Table Café

To book, please visit the Palace Shop, or contact 01749 988111 ext. 205.

Course tutor: Stephen Stokes of Bodden Cross Studio 


Tools for the early stages of the course will be loaned to you by Stephen, this includes a mallet, straight edged chisel, appropriate curved chisel and carving station. Timber for the first project is included. For the final project you will need to source your own timber or purchase a suitable piece from Stephen. Depending on size this will be around £10 - £20.
 
Letter carving involves the use of very sharp tools – part of the course will cover sharpening. Please do not sign up for this course if you are unable to handle sharp tools safely. Neither Stephen nor the Bishop’s Palace can be held responsible for any incidents that may occur during this course.
