Traditional Signwriting

February 17, 2015 @ 6:30 am - 9:30 pm


Qualified signwriter Ian Widdop will guide you through the basic fundamentals of Traditional Signwriting. Whilst it’s true that the skills of the traditional signwriter takes many years to master, these highly engaging and hands on classes will cover the basic tools and processes of traditional sign writing while learning the essential brush control techniques and classic lettering styles.

The classes are small to allow one on one time with Ian.
