Introduction to Lettering Design + Signpainting Basics

Introduction to Lettering Design // 1 day workshop with illustrator Holly Pereira // Saturday Feb 8th // 10:00 - 16:00 // €95

In this one day introduction to hand drawn lettering, we will look at the basics of lettering design. We will do a series of fun exercises to explore serifs and sans serifs, drop shadows and drop caps, flourishes and motif.

We will finish off the day by putting our exercises into practice, and we will make a finished piece with wording of our choice.

Suitable for folk with *some* background in art & design (be that kindergarten, junior cert or third level, doesn’t really matter as long as you’re keen, and can hold a pencil!)



Signpainting Basics // 1 day workshop with illustrator Holly Pereira // Sunday Feb 9th // 10:00 - 16:00 // €95

In this one day workshop, we will explore the (very basic) basics of signpainting. From what kind of brushes to use, how to mix the paint, how to transfer the letters onto the paper/board, and how to hold the brush.

Suitable for absolute (but keen) beginners!


Each day = €95, do both for €175
