GUS FISHER

Gus Fisher at Penicuik Arts Festival 2007

Gus Fisher left school at 16.

He’s been working as a trainee lettercutter and sculptor with Ian Newton at the Stonework Studio, Ninemileburn, near Penicuik.  Gus was awarded the Gold Arts Award by Trinity College, London as the top student across the country in 2007, working on self-directed tasks with other artists, and helping to pass on his own enthusiasm and creative skills to youngsters in community workshops.   Gus and his artwork were transported to London’s Roundhouse for the awards ceremony last summer, and one of his pieces bought by Trinity College for their entrance hall.
