Private Brush Lettering Workshop

Are you looking for a gift, or a day out for yourself and your friend? This workshop is perfect for you!

If you are treating yourself, there will be no other student there on the day, all the attention will be dedicated to you. Or make it a perfect day out with your partner, parent or a friend where you both get to learn a new hobby.

In this fun workshop, you will 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 ‘YaMogu’.

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 brush lettering 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!

This workshop is perfect if you don't want to be distracted by other students and make the most of one to one with the teacher.

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

Graphic Designer with a passion for Brush Lettering

4.9 (72)

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.

Awesome class! Had a great time learning brush lettering and the advice, coaching and detailed feedback was phenomenal. So exciting to also receive a great goodie bag of specific pens/ tools and the booklet capturing all the detail we went over in the class. Alena truly is an expert and so much experience. It was just fun, good conversation and easy to work with her. Inspired and even been practicing already!! Highly recommend her to anyone!

We had a private class with Alena and she was really patient and comprehensive with her teaching. We went through the basic brush lettering strokes before covering all the alphabets. By the end of the class, we were able to write our names using brush lettering. The lesson included all the necessary materials and a booklet for further revisions after class. Highly recommended class as time flies while Alena was teaching and we came out of the class with a new skill set.
