Letter and Sign Carving

Reed Hayden
June 2-6

This introductory course gives participants a strong grounding in lettering and motif carving for signs and similar projects. Reed’s instruction covers essential topics such as relief carving; techniques of sign layout, design, and construction; sharpening; and gold leafing and finishing. Each student begins the course with practice-lettering in pine, following by carving and gilding a mahogany shell. For the final project, students design and create signs with individualized motifs, also in mahogany.

Participants work with power tools such as band saws and routers to cut out signs and remove background waste. They work with hand tools such as v-tools, gouges, and veiners to carve letters and motifs.

Since 2000, Reed Hayden has performed sign work, maritime carving, and custom woodworking out of his own workshop in Surry, ME. Previously he worked as a boat joiner, carver, and letterer for several Maine boatyards, as well as spending five years as lead carver for Amidon Woodcarving on Cape Cod. Reed has taught woodcarving at the WoodenBoat School in Brooklin, ME for many years.

Open to all.

Tuition: $730
