1 DATE (3.5 CONTACT HOURS)

I'm thrilled to offer my Hand-lettering 101 'make-and-take' Workshop here in Sparta! You'll walk away with your toolkit (no after class shopping needed) ready to hand-letter everything in sight after you create your very own wood sign perfect for decorating at home or gift giving. Although the focus will be on making a gorgeous wood sign, the techniques and materials you'll receive can be applied to any surface (think: mirrors, chalkboards, windows, etc.). This class is appropriate for all levels of learners. Instruction will focus on creating the look of pointed pen calligraphy with pencils, markers and paint, a process sometimes referred to as 'faux-lligraphy.' I'll show you how to draw, thicken and join your letters seamlessly using gridded paper, guidelines and my alphabet to create beautiful modern calligraphy.

  • alphabet worksheet
  • hand-lettered tote bag
