Coming Events

My Life as a Signwriter Wayne Tanswell

September 29, 2017, 7.30

My career as a sign writer began on the day I left school back in 1980. Since then I have worked all over the United Kingdom including Scotland, Wales and the Home Counties. My overseas work has taken me to Bahrain (Middle East), Zambia (Africa), and European Countries such as Spain and Holland.

Some of my well known commissions include Sky TV, Lovejoy, Chris Rea, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, Museum of Royal Worcester and project for the Tate at the Blue Finn Building in London.

As a Lettering Artist, I have help several solo exhibitions including, Cambridge, London and in my home County of Suffolk. My art consists of original quotations, mixed fonts, and merging a traditional skill with a contemporary flare. The "Writing Wrongs" exhibitions have been featured on the BBC and national newspapers.

I have a huge respect for time honoured skills and intend to keep this tradition alive by running workshops and seminars at home and abroad.
