This workshop is now SOLD OUT. Check our other events across the London Design Festival, including demonstrations from Mike on the evening of 21 September. The next workshops with Mike in London are 7-10 October and 28 April-1 May.

We’re back at Borough Market for this year’s London Design Festival for more intensive hand lettering workshops. Paint, brushes, lettering and laughs are guaranteed as you hone your Gothic (Block), Casual and Script letter forms through a hands-on process of practice, personal critique and expert guidance from Sign Painters‘ very own Mike Meyer, plus a special guest. It all starts with a pencil, drawing and developing an understanding of the basic letter forms. These then form the basis for building your brush skills.

This intensive one-day workshop is suitable for complete beginners, and those wanting to improve and refine their existing skills. It takes place in the iconic London setting of Borough Market, the UK’s oldest food and drink market, with lettering inspiration all around. This means we’ll be undercover, but partially outside, so wear warm clothes. All equipment is included, although be prepared for paint to get on you and your clothes.

Thank you to Borough Market and the Bankside Design District of the London Design Festival for hosting this workshop.
