Since 2016, Jeff Marshall has been sharing his knowledge and deep passion for script and casual lettering globally and locally - 'stripping back all the bullshit' and getting back to the fundamentals of brush control is something he feels strongly about. These fun-filled relaxed workshops are not about painting "pretty pictures" but understanding the brush and what it can do. Newbies or well seasoned, everybody is welcome... come and get involved!

Imagine where you’ll be

6 months from now

if you really work at this?

An absolutely brilliant introduction in a welcoming environment and exactly what I hoped it would be.

I was very nervous about picking up a brush and instead the time flew by and I learnt a huge amount.

Rachel Joy Lettering

It’s great that you’re teaching this properly and passing your knowledge on.

Perry Signs London

Thank you so much for all your training Nick. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Signwriting Jack

I can't believe my luck when I get to say I am a full-time signwriter myself 3 years later. I still have so much to learn, but I wouldn't be where I am without Nick's guidance and support.

Signwriting by Dawn

What I got out of Signsmiths, was knowledge, confidence, skills, support and new pals.
I'm now working full time as a sign painter and chalkboard writer.
