The first part of the lettering workshop is focused on honing your Gothic (Block) letter forms through a hands-on process of practice, personal critique and expert guidance. It all starts with a pencil, drawing and developing an understanding of the basic letter forms. These then provide the basis for building your brush skills.


With the basics under control, the next two days are given over to developing a range of techniques to add a little something extra to your painted letter forms. Mike will guide you through a variety of lettering styles (Casual and Script) and effects, including: basic shadows; outlines; bevels; convex and concave lettering. The aim is to accelerate your ability to create more distinctive lettering for all sorts of purposes.


Workshop hours are from 10am - 4pm with an hour break for lunch.
