Beginners Signwriting Workshop
In this two day course professional signwriter Rachel E Millar, with assistance from Hana Lindsay of Sure Signs, will introduce participants to drawing and painting letters by hand. Proudly supported by AS Handover and Better Letters.
The weekend will start with a short demonstration of the tools and a brief chat about the history of the craft. Students will then spend time practicing brush strokes on paper to get a feel for the painting techniques. After lunch there will be a drawing session where Rachel will explain the basics of two letter styles and sign layout. Each person will choose one short word (3-5 letters long) to draft before its transferred to a prepared wooden board. The rest of the weekend will be concentrated on choosing colours and painting a one-word sign, which will be taken home at the end of the weekend. Each class is limited to six places so that we can spend time concentrating on every participant!
