Martin Wenham first learnt the technique of letter-cutting from a professional carver in 1967. Since then, he has developed his own techniques and approach and, after a career of teaching, established himself as a full-time carver. He first exhibited in 1982 and since then his work has been included in most major British exhibitions of lettering arts. His work is held in collections across the world and is sold by the Goldmark Gallery, Uppingham. Martin also regularly taught letter carving for twenty years at West Dean College.
