Stone Letter Carving Course at the Stables

11 Jun 2013 in Highland, Visual Arts & Crafts

Cromarty Arts Trust is delighted that Richard Kindersley will be making a welcome return to Cromarty in September to run a 6 day stone letter carving project for apprentices. Dates for the workshops are Monday Sept 9-Saturday Sept 14.

The aim of the project is to increase the skill set of Scottish craftsmen, be they existing stone masons or those who are considering embarking on this career, with a view to increasing the pool of talent that is available in the Highlands.

Last year, Richard worked with 9 apprentices who come from all over Scotland to learn the traditional craft of stone letter carving. One of the apprentices said ‘This is such a terrific opportunity. Richard is a wonderful teacher and I’ve learned so much over the last 2 weeks which I’ll be able to use in my career.’


If you’re interested in this terrific opportunity, please get in touch as places will be very limited. Costs of the course is £495 which includes lunches and refreshments.


Accommodation can be organised if necessary.
