Letter Cutter in Stone and Wood
Philip was among the last students to complete the 3 year Lettering diploma course at City & Guilds Art School graduating in 1996. After short spells assisting Ralph Beyer and Richard Kindersley he set up his own workshop in London and continues his association with the C&G Art School with teaching on the Historic Carving Courses.
The workshop specialises in inscriptional work including letter carving in stone and wood, painted and sign written lettering and architectural oil gilding. Carving commissions can be found at Royal Academy of Arts, Westminster Abbey, numerous churches and cathedrals, National Trust properties and private commissions. He is a member of the Artworks Guild and Letter Exchange
