A Hand Lettering Workshop
Join us for the Mike Meyer Hand Lettering Workshop. Two days of paint, brushes, lettering and laughs. You will hone your Gothic (Block), Casual and Script letter forms through a hands-on process of practice, personal critique and expert guidance from Sign Painters’ very own Mike Meyer. It all starts with a pencil, drawing and developing an understanding of the basic letter forms. These then form the basis for building your brush skills.
• Letter construction and basic layout
• Brush and paint technique, and care
• Three core alphabets, gothic (sans serif), casual and script
Who is it for?
The workshop is at an introductory level with lots of personal input so that everyone can make progress across the two days. Those with some existing experience will also gain from the ability to ask questions and observe demonstrations.
open before 9 February 2015
The workshop will be held in English. We will supply a basic set of special paints and other special equipment. Please bring your own basic painting gear, like pencils and eraser, small tins or jars, brushes, compasses, old newspapers and rags, sketching paper etc. Further instructions on needed equipment will follow.
This event is supported by the Designschule München.
