Christmas Showcase of Lettering Art at the Lettering Arts Centre, Snape Maltings
Friday 23 November to Sunday 23 December 2018
Here are some initial thoughts for original Christmas gifts!
The Lettering Arts Centre presents its Christmas showcase, a stunning collection of hand-made works designed by the UK's leading lettering artists. There is a wide selection of unique hand-made pieces with inscriptions to amuse and uplift. It is an inspiring selection of Christmas gifts, with something for everyone.
Artworks on display range from letters carved on stone and wood to lino-cut prints, glass etching and limited-edition calligraphy pieces.
In the shop there are gifts where the recipient’s initial make it personal, whilst bon mots and famous quotes make it pertinent.
The exhibition is curated by the Lettering Arts Trust, a charity whose mission is to raise awareness of the historic art of lettering and safeguard the timeless skills of letter carving through a comprehensive education programme, including an apprenticeship scheme. Some of the pieces in the collection have been created by the charity's former apprentices.
Gallery and shop open Friday/Saturday/Sunday/Monday 11 am – 5 pm and by appointment.
