SIGNPAINTING: HAND-CRAFTED SCRIPTS
MELBOURNE  |  Saturday 10th October 2015 :: 10am–5pm

 

With Wayne Thompson and Brett Piva

Hosted by CATC Design School and Billy Blue College of Design, Melbourne

595 Little Collins Street, Melbourne

In this full-day workshop, participants will learn how to create script lettering in various styles both on paper AND with a signwriter's paintbrush. Participants will learn some of the traditional script lettering techniques of the signpainter trade, and explore a range of lettering styles such as Upright Script, Casual Script and Showcard Script. Through an exploration of the construction techniques in both pencil and brush, participants will achieve a greater understanding of scripts and taste the lost art of expressive sign painting. The morning session introduces participants to the six basic brush strokes which create letters, before working pencil-on-paper to create a sample word. The afternoon session allows participants to paint their finished piece using traditional signwriter's tools, under the guidance of the tutors.

EQUIPMENT: All equipment including paint and brushes is supplied on the day, although you should bring along pencils, rubber and ruler for the drawing sections. Brushes and paint will be available for purchase to take home after the workshop.

HANDLETTERING: NAKED HANDLETTERING
NEWCASTLE  |  Saturday 24th October 2015 :: 10am–4pm

 

No, not drawing on naked bodies... This workshop, hosted by the exciting new venue Pumphouse School of Design in Newcastle, is is all about removing the fancy pens and inks, and stripping it back to nothing but pencil and paper. It's all about getting back to basics, and learning pure technique. The day will be filled with intensive pencil-on-paper exercises and demonstrations designed to get your head around the basics of sketching letters. We will cover key principles such as proportion, rhythm, visual balance, creating ligatures, fitting words and phrases together, alternate letterforms, flourishes and a whole lot more. As well, we will spend an extended period of time examining and recreating styles such as:

• Classical script
• Casual script

• Brush script
• Signpainter Script 

• Blackletter

In the afternoon session, you will get the chance to create your very own handlettered example under the personal guidance of your tutor Wayne. And we'll do it all using the most basic tools possible: simple pencil and paper.

EQUIPMENT: Paper is supplied, all you need is some graphite pencils, a ruler and a rubber.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: This class is designed for participants who have a professional or personal interest in typography, art or design who would like to improve their lettering skills. Beginners welcome, it's all about learning!
