STRUCTURE

The founding Letterheads started this movement to promote teaching, learning and passing of skills from one generation to the next. Porto Letterheads 2019 gives our participants the opportunity to keep this tradition alive.

Panel jam

In the core of our meet, we have the Panel Jam: Summer Edition.

This space is set up with easels, panels and paint to provide the freedom to practice, observe others, and engage in the spontaneous learning that make Letterheads events so unique. Our team prepared a special area where the atmosphere is inspired by the summer time.

Then, we have other areas dedicated to particular activities.

Workshops & Demonstrations

Divided into four areas, these are informal spaces to participate, observe, ask questions and learn about the techniques on show. Sessions will run in two periods: morning and afternoon each day, except Sunday which will be given over to finishing off touches. Please arrive 15 minutes before the session start time, there is no pre-booking although some rooms have limited capacity.

Since all four areas will be active at the same time, be mindful about the schedule and fellow letterheads by not spending all of your time in one place. Several sessions will be running twice, so please don’t take both of them.
