WATCH @ WORK | LETTER CUTTER
Mark Bury FRSA | Technically entitled a ‘Letter Cutter’, Mark would be more commonly understood by laymen as an engraver or stone mason. His work includes carving in stone, engraving on glass, hand carving wood and designing artwork for printing. He was trained in lettering design by David Kindersley in the 70s. His work includes pieces for Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Ely Cathedral, Little St. Mary’s Cambridge, the Fitzwilliam Museum and Corpus Christi College, Cambridge and is now to include Bury Farm! We have commissioned Mark to engrave, in limestone, a plaque for our workshop which will be called ‘The Champion Workshop’ in honour and appreciation of our first sponsors and trustee, Phyllis Champion and family. Better than just a commission, we have asked Mark to do the stone engraving at our workshop and allow visitors to come and watch him at work, a unique opportunity not to be missed! If you would like to join us for this occasion you can drop in any time between 10am and 4pm on Sunday 29 of July 2012.
