The event will offer the chance to take part in a range of sign-making techniques

The ‘Dress Down Hands On’ programme will take place on September 26th, where participants are invited to take part in practical activities to give a better understanding of the signage fabrication process. Activities will include letter fabrication, tray sign fabrication, paint application, flex face box fabrication and signage assembly.

Starting at 9.15am and finishing at 4pm, the event hopes to give those both in the industry and those new to signage a chance to further their skills and gain a greater understanding of what goes into sign-making. Lunch and refreshments will be provided and those wanting to take part should contact organisers to express interest. The event is running in association with the British Sign and Graphics Association (BSGA).

Many within the industry have called for more sign-making training courses and qualifications, and sign-making is generally underfunded with only a handful of college courses available.

Signage consultancy firm Make It Happen specialise in providing support and resources for the industry. SignFab is one of the UK’s largest trade signs manufacturer and was founded in 2001.
Experienced staff will be on hand to demonstrate techniques and offer support to those wanting to learn more about the craftsmanship involved in sign manufacturing.
