Chicago: Mike Meyer Hand Lettering Workshop

***Bookings coming soon, click 'going' or 'interested' to receive the notification when tickets become available***

This four-day workshop with the globe-trotting Mike Meyer - Sign Painter is a crash course in the essentials of sign painting, with fun, lettering and laughs throughout. The workshop is

suitable for complete beginners, and those with previous experience, with Mike providing one-to-one input throughout.

The first part of the workshop is focussed on setting out and painting Gothic (Block), Casual and Script letter forms through a hands-on process of practise, personal critique and expert guidance. 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, with input on paint, brushes and other specialist equipment used to paint letters.

With the basics under control, the final two days allow you to develop a range of techniques to add a little something extra to your painted letters. Mike will guide you through a variety of lettering effects, including: basic shadows; outlines; bevels; convex and concave lettering; masks; cut and roll fades. The aim is to accelerate your ability to create more distinctive lettering for all sorts of purposes.

The workshop fee of $795 includes all equipment, and a copy of Mike’s folding alphabets sheet which is only available to workshop participants. You just need to turn up in clothing that you don’t mind getting covered in paint!

Thank you to Right Way Signs of Chicago for hosting this workshop.
