1, 2, and 3 day workshops at your place


These courses aim at bringing the essentials of signwriting to your place of work or study.

It is a great way to develop new skills in a familiar surrounding.


How To Paint great Letters

The day begins with a chat about what I do and an introduction to the essentials of signwriting.

We then start-up with some drawing techniques that include gridwork, letter structures and tracedown techniques – all fun and at the heart of creating good looking lettering.

We will then practice with the brush all of the foundation strokes with the classic vintage styles included alongside my demonstrations. You will be amazed at what you can learn in one or two days.
