WHAT IS BRUSH LETTERING?

Lettering is the art of producing and creating beautiful type. Brush Lettering is creating type with either a brush, or a brush pen. In this workshop I’ll be teaching you how to write with a brush pen, but the principles are very similar!

WHAT TO EXPECT

In the first hour, I’ll introduce you to your pen and tools (which you get to keep!), hand and body positioning and elemental strokes. The second hour we'll build letters and words.

In the third and final hour, I’ll run through composition and embellishments. Then you will have the remaining hour to work on a private project or continue practicing whatever you want to work on. This is a great time to play, experiment and ask me deeper questions about lettering now that you’ve got the basics down.

I’ll also introduce you to deliberate practice methods, how to set up a lettering space at home, online and real person lettering communities and suppliers, and how to practice mindfulness during practice.

I have also capped attendance numbers to a maximum of 10 ensure quality time for everyone.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

This is great for anyone who has an interest in lettering, is a designer, artist, hobbyist or someone who just loves a good DIY project.

Adding brush lettering to your arsenal of skills will give you the potential to add a human and bespoke touch to designs, crafts, gift wrapping, card writing, spice up your planner or lists.

If you’re a designer, creative professional, or typographer, or just a lover of type, lettering is a great investment. Your work can be digitised, vectored, to create fonts or be extra visual element to a project. Plus it’s really fun :D
