In our workshops we share knowlege of our sign making techniques. Technical information and 'secrets' of the trade and our methods are revealed.
But the most important thing I wish to share is 'how to have fun in the business' by following our passion to be creative. One excercise we do is to design and then build a bug sign. Each student is given the same starting point - a dikmensional leaf with the letter 'B' on it. They are to make a truly dimensional sign in the most creative way they can think of. Each and every workshop I do I am amazed at the wonderful creations. The litle signs tell amazing stories and in the proces a whole new way of thinking is developed. It is one of the many fun ways we can work each and every day - if we let ourselves. Here's a couple of the wonderful creations by Wray Basset and Phil Ghi.
We had a wonderful and long day of learning and sharing. Tomorrow we wrap things up.
