Five Day Intensive Signwriting Course

During the five day intensive course, you’ll learn the basics of traditional signwriting, from layout and design to shading, lining and brushwork.

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*.

Coronavirus update

Following the latest advice from the UK government and Public Health England, we are reviewing our upcoming 2020 tour dates. We’re very disappointed that we can’t bring the fun of the fair to you all but we hope to see you soon in 2020 when things settle down.

We will be monitoring the situation and we will update you weekly on our social media, or as soon as the situation changes. You can also find the latest information about our 2020 tour in our blog post which we will keep updated.

Thanks for all your patience while we work through these unpredictable times.

Joby, Georgina and the Carters Team.
