LEARNING TO CARVE LETTERING IN STONE WITH MARTIN COOK
In July Martin promoted his letter carving courses at Hampton Court Flower Show. The response was huge. We have just held the first Martin Cook lettering in stone weekend course.
It was really enjoyable watching people development new skills. Martin, and his son Matthew, taught 9 delegates the basics of hand carved lettering in stone. The progress made was very satisfying. Everyone went home with a new passion and piece of work that they created with the help of Martin and Matt.
The pupils came from all around the country, some as local as Marlow. Some took advantage of the Dovecot Studio B&B for their accommodation. This gave the guests that stayed the opportunity eat together on Saturday evening and talk about their new interest.
It was a great weekend. It was described as ‘Excellent but challenging at times!’
We will be posting more dates for courses in the near future.
