This is a beginner level hand lettering class! In this class we will explore a modern style of calligraphy, also known as hand lettering, or “faux calligraphy”. In this class we will break down the alphabet into a series of upstrokes and down strokes using 3 different pens to explore the boundaries of the hand lettered alphabet and the different ways you can use one alphabet to create different styles based on the tools you use. We will focus on one main style of lettering, but will learn how each tool can create a look that is completely different and different ways to use each tool. Hand Lettering builds off of a basic knowledge of the English alphabet and is a great way to dip your toe in the water of learning to create. I provide step by step direction, resources, and encouragement in order to help you get started in the world of lettering and will guide you through creating a paper sign beautiful enough to hang in your home. You will leave knowing the basics of lettering and how to use a pattern to create beautiful work on your own! Come ready to laugh, explore, and enjoy the imperfection of hand lettering. With breaks as needed. Maximum of 10 students. One 4 hour session.
