Do I need any experience to do a Signsmith course?
No experience required as these courses cater for all levels of ability. In fact the less experience the more you will get from the day in many ways.
Most of our attendees are new starters and some come from associated practices such as chalk board art and graphic design.
The magic hat for students and P45/income support.

NEW STONE SCULPTURE
An exciting new show featuring contemporary stone carvers.
About the artists
Philip Surey studied Lettering at the City & Guilds of London Art School establishing a London based studio in 1996 where inscriptions and commissions for many varied clients are hand produced in stone, wood and with brush. Alongside commissioned projects, his own work explores the sculptural possibilities of lettering and line, and has exhibited at the RA Summer Show and at Art Antiques London 2010 & 2011 where he was represented by Art Dealers William Agnew & Co.
I work with native limestone, sandstone and slate. As a trained architectural carver and stonemason my pieces are geometrical, tightly controlled, highly finished, heavy and tactile. I am in control of the stone but the material is central to the effect. I am interested in suggesting the movement of unmovable stone in the mind of the viewer and attempting to create landscapes and narratives in a medium not usually associated with these. My influences lay mostly in myth, psychology and literature.
Ben studied Fine Art at Central St Martins, graduating in 1990. He is currently working as a stonemason and foreman on Heritage buildings. Ben is interested in carving abstract and geometric forms using English “marbles” and Portland stone. ‘The skill of the “process” of carving and the “beauty” of the realised form are the motivating factors in my work’
MadC epic new showing

Last Thursday, 4th of September, my solo show “Reflections” opened at Kolly Gallery in Zurich, Switzerland. It was a wonderful evening in a beautiful gallery. Thanks to the many people who showed up! If you are in the area – the show is on until 4th of October. There’s also a new silkscreen print out that is available on the gallery’s website since today. If you want to get one go to the shop page here. The exhibition catalogue is also available on the shop page.
Thanks a lot to Julien and his team, my family and friends and Marco Prosch – the best photographer there is – for helping me on the way to this beautiful exhibition. During this week I will upload a little film about the Kaleidoscope cans that are on display in the gallery. So stay tuned…

The newest addition to the Weybridge dining scene, No 7 Temple bills itself as ‘Indian Gastronomy.’ We decided to treat my father in law to his favourite cuisine for our last meal together.
Opened in late June, No 7 Temple has brought a new style of Indian to Weybridge – refined Indian food with contemporary surroundings.
They’ve done a superb job with the interior. The tones are a very current grey. The furniture and accents are smart and elegant.
It’s a large space and there’s plenty of room between tables.
The evening was very busy as locals acquaint themselves with the new restaurant on the scene.
Our visit started alongside casual diners and families, by the time we left was mostly stylish couples and groups of friends.
The menu features interesting sounding dishes like railway lamb tava and gunpowder chicken curry, along with the regular favourites.
Pricing is simple. There…
