In this weekend course professional signwriter Rachel E Millar, with assistance from Hana Lindsay of Sure Signs, will introduce participants to drawing and painting letters by hand. Proudly supported by AS Handover.

The weekend will start with a short demonstration of the tools and a brief chat about the history of the craft. Students will then spend time practicing brush strokes on paper to get a feel for the painting techniques. After lunch there will be a drawing session where Rachel will explain the basics of two letter styles and sign layout. Each person will choose one short word (4-7 letters long) to draft before its transferred to a prepared wooden board. The rest of the weekend will be concentrated on choosing colours and painting a one-word sign, which will be taken home at the end of the weekend. Each class is limited to six places so that we can spend time concentrating on every participant!
