The Revival of crafted letters

Overview of truly work orientated Signwriting training, in its newest form.

A fair amount has been written about the recent resurgence in interest in the craft of signwriting. In the past 5 years a steadily increasing demand for hand written signs has characterised architectural and retail developments across the UK.

My response to this trail blazing trend is to teach the new crop of lettering enthusiasts the proper technique of painting letters alongside my own professional signwriting practice – but to teach it in a completely new way… as it should be taught in working parts.

Over the past 5 years I have trained dozens of students, and 4 apprentices now making their way professionally in the marketplace. It has been and continues to be an inspirational time giving people the essential skills to change their lives.


Passion breeds Success. I promise.

Hey Alex

Yes I have booked you in. You sound really determined and that’s really good for a number of reasons mainly that all the guys I have trained who are now successful like Jack Hollands or Tobi Newbigin were all determined.
All of your other creative expressions will find very good context and company with signwriting because it raises sensitivity and awareness to impossibly, beautiful, high new levels.
The course will confirm what you are doing and give you some killer essential skills.
I promise you that.

Suits everyone

”Occasionally you take part in something that alters the course of your life. I’m not talking total transformation, more like crossing over a road to be in the sunshine. The change happens quickly, you observe it taking effect. Your eyes and heart open, you see things with clarity and meaning, the new experiences create a new, more beautiful, reality and suddenly the path ahead looks different.   

It happened to me this weekend when I learnt to hand paint letters.
