Letter carving Foxhill
In June 2013 I participated in a 2-day workshop held by Lois Anderson, a London based letter carver who was trained under Richard Kindersley. She operates from herstudio in Islington, London.
The first day we learned how to master the chisel and hammer, and trying to get the technique under control. Which meant carving lots of 'straights' and 'rounds'. On the second day, it was time for some freestyle designing, taking the typeface Foxhill as a starting point, for some 'Foxhill' letter carving.
