Tom Smith is running our class in May, 6.30pm on the 7th May at Windmill Street. Bring yourself, your usual kit and a pointed brush, ideally a #3 or a #4 sable. Paper slightly heavier than zeta may be more suitable as it will handle the ink/paint better - cartridge is OK. 

Report added 30th May. 
Brush Bash
What a great lesson with Tom Smith, learning about brush lettering, even for those of us who had done this before, it was a good refresher. There was a small group of us but that meant quality for us as students - as Tom was able to give us one to one attention. He made it fun for those who had never written with a brush before and so easy to achieve. Starting with the basic strokes and trying to get us all to be regular and even with our strokes. Then we moved onto joining the strokes up to make a basic one-stroke letter. We looked at making our strokes light and then heavy, he even got us to try dry brush lettering. The whole evening was made very interesting by Tom’s wonderful personality, he made us all feel comfortable with brush lettering. Thank you Tom for a great lesson and let’s hope that you will teach us again soon.  Dale- Cormack Pearson.
