Spring | 2019

Self-taught stone letter carver Lisi Ashbridge uses traditional handheld specialist tools to create expressive alternatives to machine cut lettering for sculptures, plaques and more.

As Chairperson of her local Open Studios in Marlborough and an associate member of Letter Exchange, Lisi is committed to raising awareness of the craft of letter carving. Lisi’s QEST David Blackburn Scholarship will enable her to undertake one to one tuition with Caroline Webb, one of the leading letter carvers in the country. Lisi aims to increase her typographical awareness and to become an established letter carver in wood, as well as stone.
