New people and New Skills that will help you

You are probably thinking… I’d really love to  do this… but can I do this?

The answer is definitely yes. We all started out pretty much on the same mountain. I teach in smart gradients that ease you up the slopes. For some it takes a bit longer than others but we get you there.

I remember rounding the corner of my signwriting teacher’s workshop for the first time, drawing a deep breath, heart pounding, entering his studio and the unknown. ”Cup of tea mate? Kettles over there…” Andy went from one cup of tea to the next, swinging his brush with effortless ease… he was squatting atop a strong bench whisking out Dom Casual tickets in french blue, Keep’s ‘Intenso’ poster writers paint.

It was a joy to see.

Those letters were immaculate… I stayed brewing, supping and learning how to do them.


Key techniques are understanding layouts, brush control and getting the right projects on board and work experience opportunities.
