Workshop Information

From a background in Architecture, TCDT Tutor, Nancy Peskett now specialises in the conservation and restoration of stonework, and teaches stonemasonry to apprentices and learners of all ages. In 2011 she completed a Building Crafts Apprenticeship with the Prince’s Foundation for the Built Environment, for which she received the Foundation’s Hancock Medal.

This workshop offers an insight to the art of letter cutting in stone. Following a short introduction to the history of this ancient craft, you will learn how to draw your own letterforms and use mallet and chisel to carve them into stone. A fascinating process requiring both precision and creativity! All students will be able to take home their work at the end of the course.
