Traditional Sign Painting, Pinstriping & Gold Leafing
Sign Painting & Lettering Workshop (March 30-31)
Learn the art of sign writing from Jeff Williams as he shares his wealth of knowledge acquired over 37 year of working in the trade.
This 2-day hand-lettering workshop will challenge both the beginner and those wanting to take their skill to the next level.
Day 1 we will cover tools of the trade, materials, supplies and how to assemble a complete sign painter’s kit. Instruction will be hands-on and participation will include drawing and hand-painting block, casual and script lettering.
Day 2 of the course will cover lettering enhancements, basic shadows, outlines, bevels, blends and other various techniques. We will learn to design a layout, make a pattern and transfer our designs to a sign. You will paint a design of your choice during the open easel time, which features group collaboration, individualized critiques and suggestions that happen in real-time as you work.
Things to Note:
— All materials, except brushes, are provided (while brushes will be available, we encourage you to bring your own)
— We will work with the size 8 lettering quill, but we recommend sizes 2 and 4 for more detailed designing
— Available at Mack Brushes
— Don’t wear clothing you don’t want paint on
