Signs of the Times is a two-part workshop in which participants will get a crash course in vinyl sign making, authoring and fabricating idiosyncratic signage of their own design. After they are fabricated, these signs will be taken with each sign maker and installed in the public or private location of their choosing.
Participants will learn how to lay out their designs in Adobe Illustrator, prep their file for the vinyl cutter, “weed” their cut vinyl, and apply the vinyl to a sign body. Over the course of this workshop we will also take a look at a variety of sign writing traditions, allow ourselves a brief foray into the realm of typography, and consider the novel ways in which artists, activists, and other members of the public have used signage to insert their own voice and concerns into the streetscape.
Meets once a week for two weeks. Participants ages 16 years and older are welcome to sign up!Registration Closed:
