The Lorimer Society (Incorporating the Hew Lorimer Trust) is a charitable body registered with OSCR in Scotland (SC027135) and a Private Limited Company registered with Companies House (SC179469).


The aims of the Lorimer Society are currently to advance the education of the public about the life and work of Hew Lorimer and as a means of achieving such an object:

  • To preserve and promote the work of Hew Lorimer;

  • To form a full archive of his life and work;

  • To foster excellence in stone carving, letter cutting and sculpture and iconography;

  • To recognise, as Hew Lorimer did, the interrelatedness of the arts, by fostering the work of living painters, sculptors, musicians, poets and other artists and craftspeople in Scotland.

We are currently reviewing the aims of the Lorimer Society and seeking approval from OSCR for a change in purposes.


Our events and activities are open to all. There is no formal membership of the Society at present, but please do contact us if you would like to receive notification of events or to become involved.
