Sheena Devitt Past Apprentice
One of the many advantages of the apprenticeship was the opportunity to visit other lettercarvers in their workshops. I found them all very generous with their time, sharing their knowledge of lettercarving and their experiences of running a small business. These meetings have shown me how to put systems into place that have helped me in setting up my own lettercarving business.
