Special RFS donation workshop

All profits from this workshop will be donated to NSW RFS.
Last time, we donated part of them to koalas. It really broke my heart to know that 350 koalas had died then. The updated number now is outrageous.
This has gone absolutely out of control since then, so this time I would like to support our firies with their tremendous efforts with a full donation from all profits from this workshop.
Our country, and our planet need more heroes like them <3
So please come and learn with us, knowing that you will be also contributing to help putting out fires.
Thank you,
Vanessa

Have you ever wanted to have the necessary skills to write pretty words, but always end up thinking your handwriting is awful so you would not be able to do so?
Well, let me tell you one big true:

Brush Lettering has nothing to do with handwriting. Ta-da!

Anyone can Brush Lettering!

So let's break the myth and start breaking down the alphabet together with the use of brush pens & watercolours.

You don´t need any prior experience.

We will go through a bit of colour theory together, so you will be able to mix any beautiful colours to create balanced and harmonious compositions, and I will take you through how to form letters and work with different tools.

This was a perfect introduction to brush lettering coordinated by Vanessa. She teaches with ease making it an enjoyable and easy experience, I highly recommend this to newcomers who’d like to step out of their comfort zone and embrace their mistakes as they develop their new calligraphy abilities.

The workshop was lovely, as the teacher! Vanessa has a lot of dedication into the detail and gives you tips very helpful about how to improve in the case you want to keep doing it. Don't hesitate to ask her any doubt, she will answer you so kindly and very concern that you'll get the proper answer.
I highly recommend the workshop, it gives you the basics to start doing brush lettering and is a goo way to be mindful for a few hours and focus in what you are doing.

I had the best time learning a new skill in brush lettering. Vanessa our teacher was super helpful, attentive, and knowledgeable. We learnt basic techniques in brush lettering and for someone like me who does not feel they have any confidence in their creative side this was a lot of fun! Vanessa really took the time to help. Hosted in a studio room adjoining a cafe the environment was super relaxed. The starter gifts Vanessa also sent us home with were a thoughtful touch and will definitely help with keeping up the practice! Highly recommended!!

Vanessa is a talented teacher, she covered everything from the very basics one step at a time.
The final result came easily and it was quite impressing considering I haven't handled a brush since primary school!
I think Vanessa could probably teach elefants to fly, if only they wanted to!

Vanessa is an attentive and talented teacher who gives a lot of individual attention to each student. This was my second workshop run by Vanessa, I love the lesson and the venue! I’m so grateful to Vanessa for taking the time to organise different inks for me to try after taking home the beautiful palette last time. Thanks to Vanessa for donating money to the fires from the proceeds of this workshop.

Vanessa is the funniest and most creative person I have met. I've been to two of her workshops and I enjoyed them so much! She is so passionate and will dedicate herself to explain and teach you properly. Time flew playing around with colours and writing the prettiest words, applying love and mindfulness. What I loved the most was that I was so present in the moment and being there just took me back to school homework and love letters hehe and I also loved very much my Vitamin Sea bag!
Thank you Vannesa!

Absolutely loved this workshop! Vane provides everything you need to get started and cute little extras. I now understand how to mix beautiful watercolours and have a great basis to create any word using the lettering technique she taught us. A very relaxing and fun way to spend the morning. Would be be keen for a round 2 workshop in the future!

I have truly enjoyed this amazing workshop. It was my first time trying brush lettering and to my surprise, I was actually pretty good at it. But I think it is also thanks to an amazing teacher Vanessa who was so lovely, explained everything and guided us all the way. The venue was beautiful, and with access to the cafe from where we got coffees and juices (already included in the package). Vanessa has also prepared some cheese, fruit and snacks. We also got to keep all the materials and received a beautiful bag as a present. What a great value! Overall all it was a very inspiring and super relaxing experience and I highly recommend it.

The brush lettering workshop with Vitamin Sea was an absolutely delight!! Vanessa was so thoughtful with all the beautiful materials and great quality tools we used. She was really patient with all the students, no matter what level we were. The venue was also pretty and Vanessa’s decoration, snacks and ambiance in the room made the morning one of a kind! Thank you Vanessa!
