EPISODE 12: Teaching what you know, with Liane Barker
Liane Barker is a specialist in gold leaf signage and traditional hand-painted signs. Her Brush and Pen studio is located in Queensland but she often travels the world teaching workshops.
Liane taught a workshop at the last in-person Typism conference and blew everyone away with her teaching skills which is exactly why we asked her on to the Typism podcast to talk about developing your expertise and teaching what you know.
"Learn as much you can and then develop what you've learned, pull all that together and develop your own style."—Liane Barker
