Stencilling is the application of repetitive motif or decoration via cut card. It has been popular method of decoration through the ages, creating colourful detail, relief and form to enhance architectural features within interior decorative schemes. Stencilling is found across building types, and particularly within churches, cathedrals, and private homes.
At Decowell we undertake a variety of large and small-scale decorative stencilling schemes, which are carefully planned and scaled up prior to commencing paint application. We house an extensive library of decorative references dating from the twelfth century to modern times, which can be used to create a bespoke scheme or for research purposes. Stencils are hand-cut on acetate and oil card in the studio, and laser-cut stencils are manufactured for economy on larger areas.
