Join us for the Mike Meyer Hand Lettering Workshop; two days of paint, brushes, lettering and laughs. You will 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. 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. The workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those wanting to improve and refine their existing skills.
For those that have some of the basics under control, the Lettering Effects Workshop offers a chance to learn a range of techniques to add a little something extra to your painted letter forms. Mike will guide you through a variety of lettering effects, including: basic shadows; outlines; bevels; convex and concave lettering; trick lettering; masking lettering; cut and roll fades. The aim is to accelerate your ability to create more distinctive lettering for all sorts of purposes. As those that have attended Mike’s hand-lettering workshop will know, this is all be done with a healthy dose of fun on the side.
This workshop is being hosted by Fabrikat, and all bookings are via their website.
