Ghostsigns Light Capsules & Sign Painting Demonstrations
Between 8-10pm at The Distillery (2-18 Great Suffolk Street), you can be illuminated by the Ghostsigns Light Capsules installation, and legendary sign painter Mike Meyer will be giving live lettering demonstrations.
While you are here you could take a type safari of Borough Market—spotting the huge variety of type and lettering to be found in in the bustling area. The market is open until 5pm.
Ghostsigns Bankside Walking Tour
Download the Borough Ghostsigns Walk Tour App and take a self-guided tour of the faded ghostsigns, or voices from the past, to be seen in the area.
We also highly recommend a plate of tapas downstairs before or after the workshop at Bedales of Borough, with ingredients entirely sourced from Borough Market.

Mike teamed up with the Brilliant Sign Co. and under their expert guidance we filled the Type Tasting studio with inky lettering.
