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.
Newcastle Snappy Caps Lettering Course
TWO DAYS OF HAND DRAWN AND PAINTED LETTERING EFFECTS WITH ALL MATERIALS SUPPLIED.
SNAPPY CAPS lettering course is designed to teach you efficient hand drawn and painted lettering effects to make your lettering not only stand out but also look great.
These lettering effects are more commonly used in the Sign Painting trade but have recently been seen in many forms of Graphic Design such as custom type design for book covers, greeting cards, posters and flyers. The class walks through various letter effects and applications beforehand drawing your very own letter in your choice of three given letter styles. The final task is hand painting your very own panel with your own desired effects.
The benefits of this workshop come in the instruction from qualified Traditional Signwriter and Graphic Designer, Brett Piva. With Brett’s extended experience, you’ll take home a wealth of knowledge that will not be left behind in the classroom. You’ll receive some unique worksheets based on those that were major components of Brett’s Signwriting apprenticeship and lessons learned in the trade.
All materials are supplied for the duration of the course.
