Ticketholder Sessions

These sessions are for ticketholders only.

Structure

At the heart of the meet are the three dedicated ‘panel jam’ areas. These are set up with easels, panels and paint to provide an opportunity to practise, observe others, and engage in the spontaneous learning that make Letterheads events so unique. (Please bring your own equipment, as though you were going out on a job, but leave paints, thinners and any other flammable items at home/the workshop as these will be provided.)

There are then a number of zones dedicated to particular activities. These are informal spaces to participate, observe, ask questions and learn about the techniques on show. We encourage you to drop in and spend some time in each of those that interest you, and for more experienced letterheads to join in the teaching and learning.

If a zone is busy, then come back later on, and be considerate of fellow letterheads by not spending all of your time in one place.
