Lettercarving in stone & lettering design
17-21 June 2024
Powys, Wales  
Tutor: John Neilson
Fully booked
 

I will be teaching the seventh five-day course at this delightful venue in north-east Wales in 2024, 17-21 June. The cost is £390, to include a delicious lunch each day, but not including stone, accommodation, and other meals.
Bunkhouse accommodation is available at the course venue, or there are other B&B and self-catering options in the local area.
The number of participants is limited to 10, and the course is now fully booked, but I plan to run another one in 2025: to
register an interest for next year’s course please contact me.

Here are some photos from previous years showing the yard area where we carve if the weather is fine, and the kitchen/dining/designing room.
