In this short film, artist, signwriter and academic Dr Amy Goodwin demonstrates how to paint a letter using traditional fairground signwriting techniques.
Amy specialises in traditional fairground art, working on original commissions and restoration projects, predominantly for the heritage, fairground and circus industries. All her artwork is undertaken using strictly traditional methods and often involves research with historic archives and references the roots and culture of the fairground community.
The video is one of a series of films created for the National Fairground and Circus Archive exhibition Engineering Fun: The Story of Orton and Spooner.
