MONOLINE LETTERING WORKSHOP
 

‘Monoline’ is a versatile style of lettering characterised by its consistency in weight—i.e. no contrast in stroke thickness. This introductory class is a great entry point to other methods/styles of handcrafted lettering and is designed to set you up to continue creating at home.

This workshop is perfect for those new to lettering as well as any creatives looking to improve their technique or learn a new style. This workshop has limited places to ensure everyone gets plenty of one-on-one help and personalised guidance throughout the class.

The Main Focus

In this hands-on three hour class, I teach the basic strokes that build an alphabet and how to tame your lettering nib and ink. I’ll then guide you through lettering fundamentals such as shape, spacing and proportion, as well as what makes good lettering, consistency, rhythm and simple embellishments.

Take Aways

I will also share my top ‘tips and tricks’ and effective techniques to create beautiful, expressive hand lettering which will travel home with you in the form of a take-home booklet packed full of resources! You’ll also walk away with an improved knowledge of lettering and brand new tactile skills to customise anything from posters, cards, logos, artworks, personal projects and beyond.

CLASS TESTIMONIALS
 

"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!" 

— Natalie, Workshop participant in March 2018

"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." 

— Lulu, Workshop participant in March 2018

"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." 

— Hana, Workshop participant in March 2018
 
"
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!”
