Join us for the Mike Meyer Hand Lettering Workshop; an intensive day 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 Mike Meyer, global sign painting guru and ambassador. 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. The workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those wanting to improve and refine their existing skills.
ABOUT MIKE MEYER
Mike Meyer is a sign painter from Mazeppa, a small rural town in Minnesota. He has run his own business since 1989 and, as well as hosting many in his own shop, regularly travels the world to attend and support Letterheads sign painter events. He is an ambassador for the sign painting business and, in 2012, his dedication was recognised through an appearance in the internationally acclaimed film, Sign Painters. In 2013 he held his first ever hand-lettering workshop in Christchurch, New Zealand, and this has now gone on to inspire people in over 25 cities across three continents. In his own words, ‘Nothing can replace the ‘power’ of what a brush in your hand can produce’.
