Blackpool Letters: Typography Masterclass

Join artist Lisa Wigham for a walking tour of Blackpool to discover the town's unique signage and typography.

See part-hidden examples of heritage lettering processes and hear stories of how they were made.

Then have a go yourself creating your own sign on reclaimed wood.


This 'Sign Making' workshop will be delivered by artist Lisa Wigham. Lisa will share skills from this tradition to get you started on layout of text and colour. Make your own sign on reclaimed wood to take away for your home or garden.
