Brush Lettering Basics Workshop

Brush lettering for beginners



2.5 hours 12 to 25 label $75


Casey Schuurman is a big believer in beginning by hand. Her go-to design partner-in-crime is hand done lettering — it’s charming, expressive and instantly customises with handcrafted flair.

Brush Script Lettering is a versatile tool to have in your repertoire, and once you know the basics, different treatments can be applied to create countless styles! This workshop will guide you through all the need to know fundamentals of handcrafted typography and brush script lettering. For the first part of the class, we will focus on the set of basic strokes that combine to create a hand lettered alphabet — as well as how to hold and angle the Tombow brush pen. The focus will then shift to what makes good brush lettering; consistency, various styles and embellishments.   

You’ll walk away with an improved knowledge of typography and brand new handmade skills to apply to anything from posters, cards, personal projects and beyond.

All lettering lovers welcome! This workshop covers the basics so you can achieve a good understanding of technique to improve on at home. No prior experience necessary.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:


What you'll get

- Brush Lettering notes and guides

- Tombow Brush Pen (which you get to keep)

 

What to bring

Just yourself, and a love for all things type!

Suitable for

Casey was really lovely and enthusiastic! Work-shop was a nice chill venue too

The only downside is because of the 1-1 time Casey put aside, I felt like we didn’t learn enough or could’ve progressed further for the class

Casey is lovely. The venue is fine. Materials were ok. Not that good value for money considering the class size and amount of personal attention. Could have been run much more efficiently.

Really good basics class for brush lettering! Casey is very knowledgeable and super nice. She took time to sit down with each person and break down the basic strokes.
The venue is really cool as well.
