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.
