The workshop will cover the following fancy lettering and fairground art techniques:

  • Block Lettering
  • The 3D effect
  • Understanding shadows
  • Gold leaf & gilding
  • Flamboyant painting
  • Blending
  • Lining
  • Scrolls
  • Marbling
  • Colour combinations and more

Please note this workshop shows advanced painting techniques, and is best suited to people who have experience of signwriting already. If you want to learn and have a go at signwriting, we recommend you come on one of our 5-day courses first.

If you have a particular piece of fancy lettering or decoration that you would like to replicate during the workshop, please send it to us here in advance so Joby can have a look at what you want to achieve.
