I was lucky enough to attend one of Brett’s two-day sign-painting workshops. All materials were supplied and by the end of the two days, I had two painted signboards which I was able to give as gifts. I learnt both casual and block lettering styles and I even had time to add some effects. Brett is clearly an expert in the field and he explains everything carefully and with a great amount of patience. He also gives you the background as to why you are doing something, he doesn’t just tell you to do it.
I find this really helps with understanding what you’re doing when you know the reason behind it. He’s a chilled, laid-back guy, but he has exacting standards when it comes to equipment and doing things properly. It’s a great combination of skills to have in a teacher.
Melbourne Casual Lettering Workshop with Dapper Signs and Pocket Design
A FULL DAY OF HAND PAINTED CASUAL LETTERING WITH EFFECTS.
ALL MATERIALS SUPPLIED.
Join two renowned Signwriters for this unique one-off workshop in Melbourne. James Cooper of Dapper Signs (United Kingdom) and Brett Piva of Pocket Design (Australia) will share valuable lessons to help you create the perfect casual letter.
You’ll first practice casual lettering with a brush before creating your own words with effects. Focus on the key brush strokes that complete each letter will be demonstrated before working towards hand painting your own unique casual letters and words.
Though painted quickly, concentration is focused on brush control, technique, consistency and style while working towards the final project of painting your very own words with unique letter effects.
This is a one day workshop with tea and coffee as required with a quick break for lunch.
All Materials are supplied.
