Decorative Scrolls

Scrolls are a decorative technique that can be traced back to the Greeks and the Romans. They’ve been used in all aspects of Western art from heraldry and engraving to iron work and jewellery design. They are an excellent device for filling space, framing a design or to add further decorative elements to your signwriting projects. You’ll find scrolls on vintage transport, canal boats, shop fronts and pub signs so they’re a valuable technique to add to your skillset as a professional signwriter.
In this one-day course with Joby Carter, you’ll learn about some of the different styles used through the decades and the techniques he uses to ensure beautiful curving scrolls which are pleasing to the eye. You’ll discover which style is appropriate to use with your signwriting work or restoration projects and will learn how to make your scrolls look balanced and not like barbed wire.
