Traditional skills in a digital age
Joby Carter hosts signwriting and art workshops throughout the year at his restoration workshops in While Waltham near Maidenhead. His courses are very popular and book up quickly, and he has had people travelling from all over Europe and further afield to take part.
He teaches the traditional methods of signwriting, and is an advocate of drawing and laying out your designs without the use of computers or digital software. He does not teach you to take short cuts when painting which means no masking tape for straight lines, no vinyls to cover surfaces and no airbrushing.
