Dumfries Women’s Signwriting Squad

2018 – Ongoing
Signwriting Collective based in Dumfries

After several years of sporadic lettering and painting projects, a small group of women sign writer’s got together with the support of The Oven’s Creative Producer, Kevin Reid and Glasgow based sign writer Rachel Miller. We host regular meet up’s to share skills, projects and to practice together, and also work collaboratively on client based commissions. In 2021 our client work included an ice-cream van for Sweet Sadies (Dumfries), shop facade signage for Lisa Rothwell Young (Langholm) and Gallovidia Books (Kirkcudbright), and The Midsteeple Quarter. With the on-going renovations of the former Oven building (now part of The Midsteeple Quarter), the DWSS have re-located to The Stove.

I have been leading the group the past couple of years alongside talented painter Louise Todd, and numbers vary from one or two to a dozen or more. We always welcome new painters to the group, for details visit our instagram page or contact us directly.
