Service Description

For many years the craft of sign-writing was a area of commercial art which could be carried out by one man/women operation who had the necessary flare but without the need for art college education, all training being on the job as most market towns had a busy sign writing shop. ​The changes that have taken place in the trade since the computers involvement have meant the phasing out of many talented sign-writers. Due to the speed at which the 'machine' can produce vinyl graphics, the traditional signwriter has been unable to work fast enough to earn a reasonable living. However, in more recent years there has been something of a resurgence in the trade mostly in nostalgia and leisure industry where a 'niche' market now exists which provides work for quite a number of tradesmen/women. ​One such person who has continued his work solely in the traditional way without any computer backup is Terry Smith. He has been involved in all aspects of commercial sign work for more than thirty-five years, from posters and showcard writing, illustrations and murals, coach painting and lining and of course sign-writing in all its forms, including gold-leaf work. The cost of this course is £450.00. A deposit of £150.00 is required to secure your spot. Click "Book Now" below to register.
