Sign Painting Workshop, summer 2018

Sign Painting Workshop, summer 2018

Ustvari svoj ročno izdelan napis!
(3. – 9. september 2018)
V prvem tednu septembra, ko poletna vročina že nekoliko pojenja, bo društvo Tipo Brda skupaj z Jakobom Engbergom – Copenhagen Signs, organiziralo intenzivno delavnico “sign paintinga” in “letteringa” na različne lesene materiale.

V času sedem dnevne delavnice se boš imel-a priložnost naučiti osnov pisanja in risanja črk s pomočjo čopiča. Vsak udeleženec bo imel priložnost oblikovati svoj napis.

V prvem delu delavnice se boš naučil-a o različnih slogov pisanja, barvah in učinkih senčenja. Vsak si bo izdelal tudi “mahl-stick” – podporno palico. Po osnovah, bomo razmislili o sami obliki in dizajnu lesene panele ter razvili osebnost samega napisa. Leseno panelo bomo izrezali in obrezali glede na želje vsakega udeleženca, nato pa jo pripravili za nadaljnjo obdelavo z barvami. Uporabili bomo profesionalne in visoko kakvostne čopiče in oljne barve. Skozi delavnico boš dobil-a nasvete in osvojila skrivne trike slikanja napisov ter priporočila za knjige in druge vire navdihov!

Lokacija in nastanitev
Kot je že v tradiciji društva Tipo Brda, se bo delavnica odvila v Kaverljagu (vas Grintovec 33a, Šmarje, Slovenija). Celoten teden bomo stanovali skupaj v ateljejski hiši, ki nudi prenočišče in potrebne materiale za delavnico. V primeru lepega vremena je možno prenočiti tudi v šotorih v okolici hiše.

Ker živimo skupaj teden dni, pričakujemo, da boste deležni prijaznosti, tolerantni in pripravljeni pomagati ostalim.

Stroški
Stroški delavnice vključujejo namestitev (spanje v skupnem domu, potrebna zgolj spalna vreča), obroke (zajtrk, kosilo in večerjo) ter vse materiale in propomočke za izdelavno napisa.

Create your own hand painted sign!
(3th – 9th  September 2018)

This summer Jakob Engberg, Founder of Copenhagen Signs, will give an extended Sign Painting and Lettering workshop. The 7 day workshop  will take you through the basics of hand lettering, brush lettering and sign painting techniques. You will end up with your own hand painted sign on your own custom cut wooden panel.

The first part of the workshop will teach you about various lettering styles, layout, colors and effects. Afterwards we will start to work with the brush and practice the fundamental strokes for sign painting. Then onto single stroke lettering, which will get you to know the sign painting brush, the mahl stick and the paint. After the basics, you will start to work on the layout, creating your own personal lettering! You will get to design and cut the shape of your wooden panel, then transfer your layout and paint it. We will work with professional brushes and paint. The course will also work around techniques for painting on glass, transferring techniques such as the pounce pattern, brush care and the generel tools for sign painting. You will get tips and secret tricks of sign painting and also recommendations on books and other inspiration sources of lettering!

This workshop will give you a basic knowledge about sign painting and hand lettering, and the tools to start practicing on your own.

Included in this course is a lettering quill, a mahl stick and of course your own hand painted sign!

Accomodation
Traditionally, the workshop will take place at Kaverljag (village Grintovec 33a, Šmarje, Slovenia). The workshop fee includes accomodation (sleeping in a shared dorm, bring a sleeping bag), meals, and needed materials for sign painting.  As we literally live together for a week, we expect you to share kindness, be tolerant and give some assitance with the household. This kind of behaviour is absolutely rewarding, mostly leading to lifelasting friendships.

Workshop Fee
The workshop fee is 300€. We also collect annual Tipo Brda membership (professionals: 30 €, students: 15 €) for all the participants. Only bank transfers are accepted. In case of cancellation we keep 50 % as administrative costs.

Tools needed
Grab black fine liners, markers, pencils, pens, cutter, white-out, ruller, a sketchbook … basicaly the gear you rely on most. The workshop organizers will provide all the needed materials along with already mentioned extra tools.

Application process
Briefly present your type design/lettering/calligraphy experiences if you have them already or just add a link to your portfolio. Tell us something about you: name, education, nationality, your skills etc. Keep it short and sweet.
Send it to info (at) tipobrda (dot) com – deadline: 1 July 2018.
Wait for our notification by the next couple of days – we will get in touch with all the participants to inform you with additional details.
