Intro to Hand Lettering Workshop with Alison Martin of @amartincreative
Enjoy a 2hr introductory class for brush pen hand lettering in an exclusive, intimate space. Alison will help you learn the basics of modern calligraphy or hand lettering (NO experience necessary).
Hand lettering is different from traditional calligraphy & different from hand writing - it's better! You will learn tips, tricks & techniques to create gorgeous written works. All lettering supplies are provided but please come with a favourite quote or phrase in mind (it's easier to think about what to letter in advance) - references and inspirational images from pinterest, instragram, etc. are encouraged.
You are welcome to shop after the conclusion of our workshop in The Shop Small Pop-Up.
