Earlier this month I ran a sign making & banner making workshop at Farm2Grow care farm in Staffordshire Moorlands.
On the day we learned basic sign writing skills and used experimental print techniques, and eco- paints (we also made traditional egg tempera paint using the eggs laid by the chickens on-site) to create various signage for the Farm open day, to direct people on site, and also made some smaller scale herb labels.
|Herb labels made by particpants on the sign making workshop, using experimental print methods- now varnished and ready to be put out in the herb planters!|
This week I have been working to complete the banners we started in the workshop ready for the event day on Saturday 1st September. I'm looking forward to seeing the banners up on the day, and promoting the Farm.

I am also installing and designing the new shop space, which will be opening to co-incide with the event day. The shop will contain local wares and hand made items. The shop will be opening regularly after the event day and we are currently looking for local produce and craft items to sell from the shop. Please come along to the event day or get in touch if you have items you would like to sell.
