Learn brush pen lettering at this fun Sydney class!

This class is ideal for absolute beginners and anyone with some experience, as you will be introduced to the basics of contemporary hand lettering using brush pens and work through the foundational techniques.

The class will begin with an introduction to this form of modern calligraphy and will progress into a hands-on workshop where you will learn how to create different pressures and strokes with your brush pen. This will include a series of writing exercises to familiarise yourself with the eight main strokes that are used when creating the alphabet in both uppercase and lowercase. Your experienced instructor will give live demonstrations and one-on-one guidance throughout the class.

At the end of the brush lettering class, you can take home your beautiful writing and will have all the skills to surprise your loved ones with stunning handwritten creations!

I attended the Brush Lettering Beginners class. Alena was wonderful and made us all feel comfortable, especially in the midst of covid restrictions that made the desk spacing a little awkward. The learning process of watching Alena do some basic strokes, then having 1 on 1 time with her while we practiced on our own was really valuable and worked well for a beginners class. I was a bit of a slow learner, so I did feel somewhat constrained by the 2.5 hour time frame, but Alena was nice enough go a little overtime. I'm not a huge fan of the brush pens we received, they're low-cost kids' markers and uncomfortable to hold, but the class was still good value due to the take-home booklets and having a professional teacher. My one suggestion would be to give everyone a pen to take down notes, as I regret not noting down various tips while Alena was going through them.
