Ruth Martindale Letter Carving

I am a letter cutter, working mainly in stone and wood. All my lettering is drawn designed and cut by hand using traditional methods and tools. I mainly work on commissions and like to work closely with my clients, in order to carve a piece that is totally unique and reflects their personal vision as well as complimenting setting and location.

I trained for three years at the Cardozo Kindersley Workshop in Cambridge, founded by the renowned letter cutter and typographer David Kindersley. I also learned masonry at the Building crafts College in London which gave me a good grounding in masonry techniques and three dimensional carving.

Prior to this I studied Fine Art at Wimbledon College of Art and this has allowed me to combine a creative approach with a knowledge of carving and masonry techniques.
