About

Cutting inscriptions in stone is an important part of the stone-carvers craft that has been elevated to an art form in its own right. This module teaches calligraphic and typographic design in combination with precise sculptural skills. Participants will learn to identify and understand the tools required for stone cut lettering, gain an appreciation of basic letter proportions and layout and a will cut a name or short inscription (12 characters maximum) in stone. Students come with:sketchpad and basic drawing/writing materials. They should think about a monogram, name or (very) short inscription. Bring sturdy boots.
