Joby Carter's Yard
This is an ‘abnormal’ get-together of signwriters and painters, giving us the opportunity to learn from one another and share techniques, stories and laughs. I am a signwriter, fairground decorator and traveling showman, but my position is very unusual in that I don’t tend to work for other people: the vintage fairground equipment that we travel with Carters Steam Fair gives me plenty to do! Unfortunately commitments with the Fair means that I have never been able to attend any of the Letterheads meets around the world, and I’m impressed and humbled by the huge talent of sign painters out there. By holding my own weekend meet I’m hoping to get the chance to meet some of these amazing artists face to face!
Saturday and Sunday lunch provided, with a barbecue on Saturday night.
There will be numerous things to paint, including a board each that will be auctioned on Sunday afternoon – all proceeds to the Teenage Cancer Trust. There will be additional boards for sale, and you’re welcome to bring your own stuff to paint.
Paint provided, plus some brushes (you may prefer to bring your own). Drinks on sale.
This is intended for signwriters or those who love signwriting and want to know more!
£100+vat for Saturday and Sunday,
Book weekend tickets (£100+VAT) directly via Carter’s. No accommodation provided but there is plenty locally.
