Upcoming courses:
  • March 15th - Painting House Numbers. Attendees will work towards painting a house number on a prepared marine-ply panel to take home. We will cover appropriate paint types, weatherproofing, basics of layout, drawing numerals and transferring design from paper to panel and creating depth and shadow effects. A range of reference numerals and background and enamel colours will be available for you to become the envy of your neighbours or produce the perfect present.
  • April 26th- Focus on  Lettering. Like the previous 'casual' and script courses, this will address a few other styles of lettering including block and Roman. We will explore some of the fundamentals of layout, creating balanced letterforms, varying weights and common mistakes in lettering.
  • DATE TBC in May- Mural Painting. A practical day covering ways in which designs can be transferred onto walls from concept sketches, working at height, materials suitable for different styles. This will be a messy day using masonry, emulsion and spraypaint and will require suitable clothing. We will be painting a wall mural at Lightspace designed by Kieran of Third Eye Signs and Bobbi Rae (@Bearcubs)
