Joby Carters Painting Courses
Learn signwriting in person – If you’d like expert tuition first-hand, in a real working yard, then the workshop signwriting courses are ideal for you. Surrounded by real life examples of traditionally painted signs and lettering styles and with an archive of fairground art heritage on hand, you’ll get to learn essential skills and techniques from leading signwriter Joby Carter.
Courses are held at the Carters Steam Fair yard in White Waltham from October to March. There are currently four courses to choose from running during the week and at weekends. All materials, lunch and refreshments are provided – you just need to bring some old clothes so you can get painty.
There are limited places on each workshop and students travel from around the world to join the courses so book early to avoid disappointment.
