Workshop :: Sign Painting

LFS-SignPainting2Sign Painter, John Lennig from Big Top Sign Arts returns for another round of workshops at London Fields Shoppe this March and April.

In his class, John discusses 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.

Materials included:
A 1-2 word piece using both upper and lower case in the BullNose lettering style
A Series 169 #8 Mack brush
A small container of paint
