Have you fallen in love with brush lettering? Perfected your drill strokes and itching to take it even further?
This workshop is all about getting creative and cutting loose with your lettering skills.
In the 3 hours we will explore and learn the following:
Gradient: How to achieve the gradient look, mixing two colours together to blend to perfection
Shadowing: Add shadows to your letters depending on where the light source is coming from.
Flourishes: We know you have been dying to finally add those fancy looking tails to your letters, so we are gonna show you how!
Composition: Even the most perfectly formed letters can be lost if you don’t nail your composition. Learn how to make your hand written quotes look creative and fun, but still clean and organised.
You will need to bring a 3-4 words quote, which will be turned into a finished lettering artwork piece at the end of the workshop. (ps. student with the best artwork will win a frame!)

Graphic Designer with a passion for Brush Lettering
Alena (YaMogu) is a Sydney-based graphic designer and a self taught Hand Letterer/Calligrapher. Her passion for anything hand written 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 & 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.
We'll keep you posted!
