Louise Tiplady

In 1998 I decided to train as a stonemason and studied for two years at Weymouth College where I graduated with distinctions and was awarded student of the year.

After working for five years as a stonemason/carver, in 2005 I was fortunate to be selected for a formal apprenticeship with Charlotte Howarth to learn the art of lettering and letter carving. An award, funded by the Memorial Arts Charity and the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, enabled me to pursue my interests in the lettering arts.

Much of my work is designing and carving memorials to commission though I have designed and carved a Saint for Aldeburgh Catholic Church in Suffolk in recent years. I have also exhibited more sculptural work across the country.

I am a full member of the Lettering Arts Trust and the Norfolk Contemporary Art Society.
