NGS sign gilding classes

A practical, fun course designed specifically for the new beginner

The first question I am asked is usually about experience and suitability and forms my primary consideration.

This course is designed for new starters and all levels of lettering enthusiasts.

The course aims to develop authentic letter painting skills. It will also focus on signwriting brush control, letter structures, type design, sound design layout techniques and building all-round confidence for the new creative writer.

‘Yes it’s big fun in the studio… but it is a course that also flags up to the student, stuff that comes up on site… common niggling problems and how to solve them. 

Keeping this craft alive.

Special thanks to Noel Weber, Dave Smith, Dave King, Tobias Newbigin, Kevin Roberts, for continually inspiring.
