Description


In this fun workshop, learn the careful and calculated skill of brush lettering, and learn how to perfectly wield the pressure of a brush pen, to form artistic words, under the detailed guidance of Alena from ‘Moonlight Creation’.

You'll cover lower and upper case letters, and deconstruct letters into individual strokes to master them. Once you're comfortable with the basics, your words and calligraphy will flow naturally and expertly.

By the end of the class, you will be confident to write in an artistic way. Apply your skills whenever and wherever - personalise your next greeting card, or just doodle more artistically!

You'll also receive a pack (yours to keep) with materials (brush pens and worksheet) to continue your brush lettering adventures.

Graphic Designer with a passion for Brush Lettering

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 & 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.

Alena was very encouraging and friendly. Not only everyone was given plenty of time to practice during the 2.5 hours with her guidance, we also got to learn different types of brush pens as well. Overall it's an inviting and fun workshop for all beginners! Highly recommended!

Alena was very friendly and encouraging, she patiently explained and guided us through the basics of brush lettering with individual feedback as we practiced the techniques. The venue was a room just sufficient for a small group of 8 people. We were provided blank paper to practice on, and a set of Artline Stix markers and workshop booklet with a clear breakdown of the basics of brush lettering techniques including all the alphabets and practice lines. It was fantastic that Alena also demonstrated the other markers she uses/recommends which we were allowed to try out during the workshop. She also kindly offered that we may reach out to her if we need any additional feedback in the future. I highly recommend this class, it is perfect for beginners!

Alena was really lovely and approachable, very patient in teaching and good vibes throughout the 2.5 hours! Her artwork is absolutely amazing, and absolutely suitable for everyone - even absolute beginners like me. Venue was amazing, near the grounds of alexandria, plenty of parking. Love the materials, brush pens and papers were provided and Alena even brought along her personal collection of pens for us to try out different brush pens. Highly recommend this class, super fun and interactive. Thanks Alena!! :)

Alena was great and explained the technique behind brush lettering. The venue was great and easy to access. The room we had was great to fit us in (we were 8 in total) and practice while Alena gave individual feedback on our progress during practice. Definitely recommend the workshop. :)

This was such a great workshop, after this 2.5 hour class I now feel confident to create my own style and went straight home and have been practising since. I really recommend this class to anyone interested in brush lettering/calligraphy- such a fun class! It was a bonus to get the pens + notebook included :)

Good pace and class size was conducive to sufficient hands-on approach to be given to individual students. Venue chosen was private and quiet; and there is ample space for everyone to spread their papers and elbows out to practise. Teacher has good techniques and clear explanations which were well mapped out over the course of 2.5 hours. Our practice was punctuated by live demonstrations where we have to get off our seats to observe, which was an effective was to keep us engaged! Besides the stationeries provided, she also showed us correct methods in using other brush pens, which is extremely helpful if you’re intending to experiment. Not only that, she repeatedly mentioned that she’s happy to be reached out to should you be struggling with your practice — which is encouraging. All in all, I highly recommended joining this. Thank you for an enjoyable lesson!
