Design and create your own hand painted signage with Animaux Circus. Using a personal memory to inspire your sign, you will paint this directly onto wood or a recycled material of your choice, incorporating story telling, lettering tricks and techniques supported by Animaux Circus.

No previous experience required and all materials will be provided, just bring with you an interesting memory or story to use as a starting point.
