Sarah Winterbottom and Izabella Ivanovici of industry initiative Women in Signs and Graphics, together with Sam Armstrong of signage consultancy Make it Happen are to run a ‘Ladies Day’ signage bootcamp on Wednesday 15 December at SignFab (UK) in Leicester.
The programme (9am-4pm) will cover flat cut materials, sign trays and stencil cut signage, built-up and illuminated letters, totems and CE certifications, and look at new products.
Ivanovici, of INV Recruitment, said: “This is a heavily male-dominated industry so the men to women ratio at workshops tends to favour men. This is why we decided to organise the Ladies Day bootcamp, to encourage women to learn about signage in a women-only environment where we can share ideas and opinions. Hopefully, this will inspire more and more women into the signage industry in the future.”
