Classes > The Apprentice Class
A more advanced day class planned for returning students or those who have mastered some basic signwriting and lettering skills and want to further their abilities, under tuition.
The aim of the day will be for all students to signwrite a set and complete panel designed here at Osborne Signs, which will include many traditional techniques such as shaded and block and cast shadowed lettering, Gold leaf gilding, Painted outlines and other age old effects to 'clothe the bare bones of your lettering.
As this will be an intense practical class, numbers are limited to 6 students.
A light lunch, and refreshments will be be provided.
Price of the class includes all paint and gold leaf materials, although it will be assumed that students will have their own brushes and equipment to use ( although some brushes and supplies will be available on the day to purchase)
