Saturday 11th May 2019 | 2-5pm | 54 Bell Street, Glasgow
Join us for an interactive look at the traditional craft of signwriting. Ross Hastie, the artist and craftsman behind the painting and gilding of GCHT’s office shopfront, will lead a small, in-depth workshop for a limited number of participants. Over three hours, attendees will be taken through the process of drafting and pencilling their own design, and will then have the opportunity to paint and take home a board of their own. Ross Hastie will also give an introduction to his experience in signwriting, and will demonstrate the technique of gilding – the process of applying gold and silver leaf.
Ross Hastie is a traditional signwriter based in Alloa and working all over the country. An entrepreneur, Ross has been training with traditional practitioners of the craft since he was 12, and has developed his own business informed by learned historic techniques and his own creative expression.
Refreshment will be served.
