Intro to sign painting workshop auckland new zealand

In this Intro to Sign Painting workshop you will learn how to make a beautiful wooden sign for your home, your garden, or your room… from priming your board to the last coat. Erno will step you through many of the lettering principles, color theory, and most importantly how to hold a sign painter brush like a master! You can practice your strokes the entire workshop or, if you feel confident, get started on a sign! At the end of this workshop, you could walk away with your very unique custom-made sign, to keep or to gift to a loved one.
