Richard Kindersley

Thursday 14th


Letter Carving Talk and Demonstration


Richard Kindersley is a renowned British letterer and sculptor who has been commissioned for many of Britain’s most important lettering projects including the M25 Queen Elizabeth Bridge over the Thames at Dartford, inscriptions for St. Pauls and Westminster Abbey in London, as well as many commissions overseas. His work is broad in the areas it covers including architectural carving, memorials and plaques, standing stones, font design, clocks and sundials.

Richard will present his rich portfolio of work and talk about his career as both a letterer and sculptor, including his award winning brick carving. He will then undertake a live carving into stone, which will be broadcast as he undertakes it. This should prove to be a unique experience indeed.
