5-day comprehensive signwriting course

This fantastic course will cover all the basics of traditional signwriting, from preparation, layout and design, to shading, lining and brushwork, and you will have your own painted sign (and new-found skills) to take home with you at the end of the week for all to admire.

The course will be held at: Coole Acres Fishery, Coole Lane, Newhall, Audlem, Cheshire, CW5 8AY. There is plenty of space to temporarily moor at the marina or, if you are coming by road with a caravan there is a friendly site within walking distance of the venue. Locally there are B&B's too from where you can enjoy the historic local attractions in Nantwich.

All materials are provided for the duration of the course, except for gold leaf which will be available at cost price if you would like to add it to your design. You will have the opportunity to purchase your very own quality equipment at the close of the week.

The course runs from 9am till 5pm every day, and lunch and beverages are provided.

Comfortable old clothes that you don't mind splashing with paint would be advised.

The course cost is £560 per person with £100 deposit to be paid with your booking confirmation.
