MONOLINE LETTERING WORKSHOP
‘Monoline’ is an extremely versatile lettering style—characterised by its consistency in weight that shows no contrast between strokes. This introductory class is a great entry point to all other methods of handcrafted lettering.
This workshop is perfect for those who are new to Typography as well as creatives looking to improve their typographic technique or learn a new style. This workshop has limited places to ensure everyone gets plenty of help and guidance throughout the class. See my logo at the top of this site and the process video (below) for an idea of what to expect from this class.
The Main Focus
In this hands-on three hour class, I teach the basic strokes that combine to create a monoline alphabet and how to hold and angle the pen. I then guide you through basic lettering principles such as letter shape, spacing and proportion, as well as what makes good lettering, consistency, rhythm and simple embellishments.
I share effective techniques and my top tips and tricks to creating beautiful, expressive hand lettering (which will travel home with you in the form of take-home resource booklet given to each participant). You’ll also walk away with an improved knowledge of Typography and brand new tactile skills to apply to anything from posters, cards, logos, artworks, personal projects and beyond.
A date has not yet been announced for the next Intro to Monoline Lettering class.

"This course was excellent! I loved every minute of it, and Casey was full of helpful tips and knowledge on the subject. It was the perfect fusion of the traditional craft of using ink, but she also has tips on integrating it with design programmes. Thank you!"

"Thanks so much to Casey for this great class at lovely Think Thornbury. We were provided with all the kit for practising at home & Casey was a fountain of type knowledge . Learnt lots in a relaxed, creative environment, a great way to spend a Sunday morning."

"The monoline lettering workshop with Casey Schuurman was amazing. Also, the shop is really cute and the guys at 'Think Thornbury' have made a great effort for the place to have a home feel. It's really cosy and welcoming."

"Casey is the sweetest and very passionate about what she does. She keeps her classes small so everyone gets their individual attention, and she sends you home with a booklet and supplies so you can keep practicing without stopping by a shop first :) It felt more like friends hanging out than a class. If you are debating whether to take this workshop or not... TAKE IT!”
