Your new Jim routine
Learn from the sensei of sign writing
Though you probably haven't heard of Jim Kerr, we defy you not to have been wowed by his bold, beautiful work. Under the title Seven 9 Signs, Birmingham's leader in lettering appears on buildings, above shop fronts and basically over the whole of Digbeth. Meet the (ever so lovely) craftsman himself and get an intro to traditional sign writing in the Jewellery Quarter — a place full of it — before you explore the basics of drafting letterforms using tools of the trade. You'll then have a go at painting letters for yourself. All materials are provided at the workshop, which takes place at 1000 Trades at 11am on June 30.Tickets are £5. Also on August 10.
