This is a unique chance to hear Joby share some of his signwriting expertise which is normally reserved for students on his one-day and five-day signwriting courses.
Having amassed 28 years-worth of experience Joby has extensive knowledge of accurate blocks and shadows on lettering which often eludes people even some professional signwriters. These days many turn to computers and digital software or use tapes, vinyls and masking. Joby teaches you the traditional ways of working that span over 100 years.
These traditional skills and expert tips are usually passed down through the generations, and are not readily available in books but Joby is passionate about keeping the traditional skills of signwriting alive and enjoys sharing this knowledge with his students.
Joby learned his craft with Stan Wilkinson which continues a signwriting lineage that spans five generations. Stan Wilkinson was apprentice to Mr Giles who had been trained by his father who in turn was trained by his father who was an in-house signwriter for Hovis in Basingstoke dating back to the Victorian era.
