Passion and Practices of a Master Carver
Laurence lives and works in Dulverton, he is one of only a handful of apprenticed served master carvers in the country. Laurence’s work is in high demand, having worked on many prestigious projects, including the restoration of the fire damaged Grinling Gibbons carvings at Hampton Court Palace and the replacement of the carved enrichments in the State and Octagon Dining Rooms at Windsor Castle.
Laurence’s talk will give us a fascinating insight into the rigorously detailed work involved in the restoration of fire, weather and vandal-damaged carvings. He will also talk about his passion for traditional ‘hand cut’ lettering in slate and stone. Laurence’s talk will include his recent carving of the fretted organ case panels of Exeter Cathedral and the restoration of the Matthew the Miller clock Automata figures, Step-Cote-Hill, Exeter.
