Hand Lettering Workshop (July 11)

Have you ever seen hand-lettered signs at weddings, showers, and home decor stores and wanted to learn how to make them yourself, but didn’t know where to start? Well, now you can! In this class, we will learn the basics of understanding letter forms, lettering with brush pens, and how to form each letter to create beautiful hand-lettered pieces of art to share with your family and friends! Students will go home with one of my favorite brush pens and a work book containing basic strokes, two alphabets to get you started, tips and tricks, and a supply guide to further you hand lettering skills!

Recommended for ages 12+ (parent must be present during class with children under 18).

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, purchase the class here online or stop in the studio to buy in person.
