4 x 2 hours Class size 1 to 5 (public classes), 1 to 15 label $250

Are you in need of a new hobby? Or have you been wanting to learn brush lettering for sometime now but haven't had the chance to and now you finally have time?

During this four-week course, Alena from YaMogu will teach you the absolute basics of brush lettering and will help you get confident with lettering by the end of the course. Plus, you'll receive a lettering kit that you will use during the course and at home.

Course outline:

  • Week 1: The foundation of brush lettering and the basic strokes (thin and thick strokes, overturn and underturn, two combinations, circle and few extra strokes)
  • Week 2: We will put together the basic strokes into the word 'minimum'. We will also deconstruct the tricky letters of the alphabet.
  • Week 3: We deconstruct each letter of the alphabet in detail and learn how to correctly join letters together.
  • Week 4: We look at the bouncy/modern style of lettering and work on a quote of your choice.

Learning brush lettering not only helps your creativity to grow but it also helps you to stay mindful and relaxed as you focus on perfecting each of the strokes. We promise that when you practice lettering, you will notice how the problems of the world disappear.

Over four weeks, you will progress with your lettering a lot faster than just doing a one-off workshop. You will be closely guided during your practice and supported outside of class to ensure you are keeping on track with your lettering.

Graphic Designer with a passion for Brush Lettering

4.9 (74)

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.
