Are you eager to learn the skills to write pretty words but your messy handwriting is the one thing stopping you? Fun fact: brush Lettering has nothing to do with handwriting. In fact, anyone can do brush lettering!

Let's break the myth and start breaking down the alphabet together with the use of brush pens and watercolours in this relaxing and welcoming Brisbane workshop. No prior experience is needed and all are encouraged to join in the fun.

During the workshop, 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 your friendly teacher Vanessa will take you through how to form letters and work with different tools.

By the end of this class, you will be able to create your own stunning and colourful calligraphy quotes and will leave the room with your mind at ease and your heart filled with happiness!
