What will you learn?

You’ll learn the basics of traditional signwriting, from layout and design, to shading, lining and brushwork, and you’ll have your own painted sign (and new-found skills) to take home with you at the end of the week.

The workshops have space for 15 people and all materials are provided for the duration of the course, except for gold leaf which is available at cost price if you would like to add it to your design.

Please wear old clothes that you don’t care about – you will get painty!

Lunch and hot drinks are also provided. You have the opportunity to buy your own equipment at the end of the week.

Please note these courses are very popular. To secure your place you need to book and pay the full fee. The courses hold a maximum of 15 people, and we work on a first-come, first-served basis. Click here for our Refunds Policy.

What Our Students Say:

The course was very helpful and informative, with a fantastic paint shop to work in- a really lively environment with lots of interesting stuff going on around you. Joby was absolutely fantastic, as was the whole yard with it’s legion of painters going about their work.

I could not recommend this highly enough and a massive thankyou to everybody who made it such a worthwhile experience. You’ll learn a lot in a relatively short space of time, have good opportunity to put it into practice and be set up well to continue with it when you leave.
