The Dumfries Women’s Signwriting Squad return to the Stove for their monthly meet up, an open space for all women with a love of letters, from the experienced to complete beginners.
The monthly meet up is a space for gathering and sharing skills and ideas, and each month one of the team will set a creative challenge for the group to tackle, or you can bring along an idea you’d like to develop and they can help you work towards your first signboard!
Tea and coffee and basic materials provided. Donations welcome.
Please note that our monthly meet-ups at the Stove are a space solely intended for women and those identifying as to share and develop their practice together. If this demographic does not include you, but you would like to get involved, please send us an email enquiry at [email protected].
DWSS are an informal and independent group of female artists with a love of traditional hand lettering. They support the growth of women in a traditionally male-dominated industry inspiring confidence and collective painting opportunities.
The DWSS take on commissioned based work for local businesses and organisations and can host signwriting introductory sessions or workshops at a fee. For more information visit their Instagram @dumfriessignwritingsquad.
