Martin Wenham

I would just like to mention my mentor and friend Martin Wenham.  We don’t see Martin’s work up here in Scotland as he mostly exhibits at the Goldmark Gallery in Rutland.  Last year Goldmark  produced a short film on YouTube about his work which I recommend if you want to hear more about the process of letter carving in wood and Martin’s approach to his work.

Martin talks about lettering in a very articulate way and if you want to learn more I would also recommend the interview in Forum magazine No 23 with the editor John Neilson, available from Letter Exchange.

Martin taught lettercarving at West Dean College in Sussex for 19 yrs and we first met in on his five day course in 2003.  Through his teaching and his imaginative approach to letter design I discovered my passion for lettercarving and design in wood.
