WORKSHOPS

 

I am a big believer in beginning by hand and I love sharing what I've learnt with others. These two loves sometimes combine in the form of workshops that I run for anyone and everyone interested in Typography and Lettering. Want to learn the basics? Looking to advance your skills? Tired of the screen and ready to pick up the pen again? 
There's something for everyone!

MONOLINE

Mono-line lettering is consistent in weight and shows no contrast between strokes. It's an extremely versatile style and a great introduction to lettering. It's far from easy but is a great source of calligra-therapy. 

BRUSH LETTERING INTERMEDIATE

For those who have had a taste of the basics with the brush and want more. These classes aim to take your lettering to the next level with focus on voice, style, composition, rhythm and embellishments.
