Letter Carving (one day)

January 3, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This “hands on” weekend workshop will introduce the ancient Roman techniques of V-cut letter forms using hand chisels and mallets. Drawing, composition, and spacing of letter forms will be developed for transcription to a tablet of Vermont slate. Class demonstrations and one-on-one guidance will be emphasized, with reference material provided to each participant. Completing a simple inscription will be the goal of this workshop. Intermediate carvers are welcome to bring a project to work on. Stone, tools and safety equipment are included in the workshop fee. Please bring a bag lunch, and your enthusiasm!
