Each location will be equipped with sixty sign blanks, paint, and staff for the three-hour program. The artist will instruct participants on how to ready sign blank for carving, carve their sign, and provide paint and brushes for participants to personalize their signs. The MSS is housed on a trailer stocked with sign-making supplies and holds workshops for participants to create their own, customized, carved wooden signs and provides guidance and prompts on how to make a name sign along with materials, paint, brushes, etc. as well as assistance in carving out letters with a router.
