Tom Young

Tom Young trained at the City & Guilds of London Art School on the full time Lettering course that ran until 1996. Since then he has undertaken a variety of commissions for clients including St George’s Chapel, Windsor, The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, the Olympic Park in Stratford and Eton College, producing lettering work in a variety of materials, including stone, wood, metal, brick and concrete. Having taught Lettering on the Carving course at the Art School since 2006, Tom took over as the Senior Lettering tutor in 2014 and also runs the annual carving and lettering module for the Conservation course.

In 2023 Tom was appointed to the role of Head of Carving and joined the Art School’s Senior Management Team.

“To remain relevant as a unique centre for the teaching of lettering, we focus on developing a strong understanding of underlying form and design. Our visiting tutors, who run workshops within the course, help us engage with the work of established letterers and a broad variety of contemporary practices. Although we focus mainly on stone and wood, the skills we teach here can be applied to a variety of materials and equip students to take on a broad range of commissioned work when they leave.”
