Sign Painting with Big Top Sign Arts

LFS-JohnLennigJohn Lennig from Big Top Sign Arts returns to London Fields Shoppe this Saturday for another session of his beginner brush lettering for sign painting workshop. This is his last offering until the new year, so if you have been waiting to take part, now is the time! Bring a friend or gift a session as an early holiday present!

The workshop will cover brush lettering in general and specifically the BullNose letter style, one of the most basic of hand painted styles. Consisting of 6 basic strokes, John will teach you how to create both upper and lower case letters as well as proper brush handling, brushcare, and the types of paints used. The first half of the hands-on workshop will cover the above, along with getting your brushes into the paint and practicing the 6 basic strokes. While the second half will move into letters and finish up with the creation of a few pieces to take home. “The Swoop” will also be discussed, demonstrated, and if time allows, be put to use in the finished pieces.
