Going to GoMA?

Tuesday, Sep. 11th 2018
It’s here at last! Creative Exchange’s ‘Introduction to Signwriting’ with Ciaran Glöbel and Rachel E Millar comes to Glasgow’s GoMA this Friday. The workshop is an introduction to the basic techniques of painting lettering by hand, approaching brushwork and understanding materials. We’ll be looking at methods of drafting letters by hand and working out scale and proportionality, with a chance to practice some ‘casual’ lettering, and design and paint some finished letterforms using signwriters’ brushes and enamel paints. Look forward to seeing you there!

Our Two-Year Review

Friday, Jun. 8th 2018

If your manager is asking what makes Creative Exchange so great and why would you want to join, you could do worse than show her/him our new Two-Year Review, designed by Stephen Malaney of the South Lanarkshire Council design team. It shows what we’ve been up to since 2016 – the venues, the speakers, the highlights.
