Letter Cutting in Stone with Helen Mary Skelton – Sat 2 Mar


Saturday 2 March
10.30am – 4pm

During the day you will learn the basic techniques of carving a letter in limestone. The workshop will cover drawing a letter or number, transferring your design with reference to placing and spacing, and some finishing techniques. At the end of the day, you should come away with at least 2 or 3 finished characters.

Helen Mary began her training in 1973 in the workshop of her father, JOHN Skelton who was running a busy Lettercutting business with the help of his two assistants, Jack Trowbridge and Paul Wehrle. After three years, she left to work on my own and start a family, but carried on working alongside her father on projects until his death in 1999.
