Ash Willerton : Painting Handover's Sign
Published on 16.03.2016 by Charlotte
Last week Newcastle based signwriter Ash Willerton came to visit our store in London, and was kind enough to paint brand new metal ‘blade’ signs for us and our sister company (who we share our Stoke Newington premises with) Jackson’s Art Supplies.
Ash took up signwriting just a year and 3 months ago. Coming from a graphic and web design background, he 'started on the back of being a hand lettering obsessive and was made aware of the sign painting revival after watching the sign painters movie.'
'That film really ignited my imagination and it was amazing to see how much the trade meant to the painters. The passion and talent I saw from those guys was infectious and from that moment I've barely put down the brush. I just wanted to learn and practice as much as I can.'
Watch the film that inspired Ash!
