If you’d like expert tuition first-hand, in a real working restoration environment, then the workshop signwriting courses are ideal for you.
Courses are held at Joby Carter’s restoration workshops in White Waltham near Maidenhead Berkshire throughout the year. Surrounded by real life examples of traditionally painted signs and lettering styles and with an archive of fairground art heritage on hand, you’ll get to learn essential skills and techniques from leading signwriter Joby Carter.
During the workshop you will also be able to see different restoration projects happening around you, in addition to a wide range of real life signwriting examples from a mix of genres and styles.
There are a range of courses to choose from running during the week and occasionally at weekends. All materials, lunch and refreshments are provided – you just need to bring some old clothes so you can get painty.
There are just 4-15 spaces available on each workshop course and students travel from around the world to learn so book early to avoid disappointment. For those wishing to stay over, there are a range of hotels in the local area which are detailed in the downloadable course fact sheets on each course page.
