Introduction to Brush Lettering Class

Letter it just a little bit



3 hours Class size 1 to 20 (public classes), 12 to 60 label $80


Join Yamogu Lettering and Design as they share their passion for the craft and teach you the key skills you need to be confident in brush lettering.

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!

You’ll not only leave with confidence and key skills of lettering, but we throw in your very own set of brush pens and a workbook so you can letter to your hearts content at home!

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

    • 10 pack of Artline Stix Brush Pens
    • Worksheets to practice, practice, practice!
    • More paper than you can poke a stick at
What to bring

    • Just your smile and a passion for learning!
Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This class is a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, corporate event, bucks party or Christmas party.

This would also be a nice gift for her or gift for mum.

Alena 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 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.

Really enjoyed the class, the teacher was very patient and clear.

I've been to a few classes at work shop and have always come away with a kind of take home finished piece, wall hanging, dyed pieces, a painting etc.

For this class there was a lot of practice time which I appreciate is key for lettering. But it would have been great to spend the last 45/30 minuets of the class working towards maybe a post card or greeting card on some nice paper/card to have that finished piece to take home, even if it's not perfect!

The teacher was great - patient and encouraging! Time flew by. I wished I could have stayed longer. The room was a little chilly although the cups of tea helped.

Rachel Clun  •  Jun 2020

Good intro to brush lettering. Given plenty of time to practice. Teacher was super supportive.

Shasta Marcelo  •  Jun 2020


I liked the pace. Teacher was friendly and gave us a quick demo for each section so most of the time we could practice ourselves.

Donna Taylor  •  Jan 2020


Class size was bigger than I thought. Perhaps would have been better with the use of a projector instead of having to keep going to the desk to watch instructor.
Enjoyable course though.

Vanessa taught us as Elena was placed on bed rest for her pregnancy but I was extremely pleased with the class! Vanessa was very clear in her instructions and we moved through all of the beginners strokes with enough time to practice. I felt that I improved a lot in only two hours. Would definitely recommend

Manraaj Sidhu  •  Jan 2020


This was a great experience that really increased my confidence at brush lettering. I was very well supported and encouraged, despite being quite bad (definitely my fault, not the teacher's)! We basically learnt the basic strokes of brush lettering as well as how to put this together to make letters and then how to make words. Great for any novice in brush lettering. Thank you for the experience!
