Join Alena- our queen of hand lettering- its time to bring out the glitter and DIY some decorations like no others. You’ll learn all the loops, twists and turns of brush lettering. We’ll start off with a paper and pen session to get your creative juices flowing, and then bring out the glitter and baubles!

We get stuck into the nitty-gritty,  doing warm-up drills to introduce you to the pressures and strokes of the brush pen. Once that’s all in place, each letter of the alphabet will be deconstructed into strokes to help you understand how each letter is formed. Getting these basics under your belt means having the technical knowledge to go away and be wildly creative with your own lettering projects! Then, apply all your sparkly new skills to lettering the perfect Christmas baubles, write whatever you please, and hang it loud and proud for all to see!

You’ll not only leave with key skills of lettering and DIY Christmas decorations, but we throw in your very own set of brush pens and a workbook so you can letter to your heart's content at home. And once you’ve mastered the basics and become a bit addicted, make sure you check out Alena’s follow up intermediate brush lettering session to further your skills!

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

Alena Tsarkova


Alena is a Sydney-based graphic designer and a self-taught Hand Letterer/Calligrapher. Her passion for anything handwritten started from younger years, when back in Russia her mother taught her cursive writing. This passion grew stronger during her studies at University whilst she was studying Bachelor of Visual Communication.

Overwhelmed by how much the digital era is taking over, Alena picked up the brush pen, the nib pen and started learning the art of brush lettering and calligraphy. Now she is eager to pass this skill on to people who are eager to learn this art, as she believes that writing with our hands is a skill that should never be replaced by a font/typeface.
