Christmas Showcase of Lettering Art at the Lettering Arts Centre, Snape Maltings
Friday 17 November to Friday 22 December
Hand carved and gilded ‘Robin’ by Louise Tiplady, slate.
The Lettering Arts Centre opens its Christmas exhibition, a stunning collection of hand-made works designed by the UK’s leading lettering artists. There is a wide selection of unique pieces with inscriptions to amuse or uplift, designed and made by hand. Artworks on display range from letters carved on stone and wood to lino-cut prints and limited-edition calligraphy pieces.
The exhibition is curated by the Lettering Arts Trust, a charity whose mission is to raise awareness of the historic art of lettering and safeguard the timeless skills of letter carving through a comprehensive education programme, including an apprenticeship scheme. Some of the pieces in the collection have been created by the charity’s former apprentices.
