Introduction to Modern Calligraphy - Brush Lettering

Calligraphy isn’t a lost art, it’s just an art that you haven’t learned yet. In this class you'll learn all the techniques you need to make the thick and thin lines that creates the beautiful letter forms of modern brush calligraphy.

No prior experience is required! The skills you’ll learn can be applied to cards, invitations, signs, or just to give your penmanship a little pizzazz. You’ll even leave with your own hand-drawn greeting card, a brush pen, and a workbook to continue practicing your newfound skills. And don’t worry about what you need to bring, we’ll provide all the necessary materials to get you started.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • Lettering tools and how to use them
  • Basic strokes of modern brush lettering
  • How to compose both upper case and lower case letters
  • How to connect letters to form words and phrases
  • Tips and tricks for perfecting your lettering practice
  • How to create a lettered card for your final piece

Comfortable clothing, apron, beverages and snacks, a blanket if we're sitting on the grass.

This class was very enjoyable. Jade is an excellent teacher and, in a short amount of time, provided me with a thorough foundation for “drawing” letters. She provided lots of extra lettering sheets so that I will be able to continue my practice on my own. I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning how to do brush lettering.

Such a lovely class to learn the basics of calligraphy. Jade is a wonderful instructor and gave me the basic knowledge to practice and perfect my own style. She gave us lots of takeways, tips and general information. I would definitely recommend taking this class if you've always been curious and want to learn in person vs online.
