I teach practical workshops all over the world as well as running a full time Blackboard Art and sign business in Sydney, Australia. I love to share my passion for Blackboard Art and pass on to students, knowledge and skills I have learnt over many years in the industry.  My aim is to help keep hand lettering skills alive and also to help businesses grow by having effective advertising on blackboards.

All workshops are geared to the students needs and are for any level of ability.
The 1st day takes your illustration and drawing skills from their present level to new heights. Its obviously tailored for blackboard art, but these skills are transferable to all aspects of signage. You’ll learn how to use different materials and techniques, and be amazed at how your drawing skills will improve.
Day 2 brings it all together. You’ll develop your own commercially viable font style, learn other essential fonts, special lettering effects and how the power of an effective layout can sell both with and without illustrations. I’ll also pass on loads of business tips that I’ve learnt over the many years of being in this business to either help you start or grow your own business.

At the end of this workshop, you’ll be amazed at how far you’ve come, and you’ll take away your own works of art on blackboards.

Limited student discounts available on application.

Thank you to our hosts!

“Just a quick note to thank you so much for an amazing workshop! I hopped in the car after I dashed out and felt exhausted, which, to me, is the sign of a great workshop. I am a firm believer in sharing information and really appreciate your open approach to teaching and sharing your wealth of knowledge. Thank you so much!”
