Step 1: Basic Hand Lettering Class – Preparation for Calligraphy or Lettering

February 15 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

A prerequisite for all Letter Create Workshops is the Basics Hand Letter Class.

This class translates into all forms of writing techniques including brush lettering, calligraphy, modern flourish script, paint lettering, to name a few.  It is a pencil and paper penmanship class – you will learn a solid foundation for any type of lettering.  However, we highly recommend you take a Step 2 class if you would like to learn calligraphy, brush lettering or flourish calligraphy.

This is a basic class to learn the techniques of pressure, angle and direction of your writing instrument, types of papers and pens to consider, as well as the types of lettering.  You will learn the basic italic manuscript form of writing.

You are welcome to bring your own refreshments, wine or snacks – we have light refreshments on hand too!

Make sure you check out our art retreat at Palmquist Farm this May – tickets go on sale in February – Limited space!  Email us for more details:  LetterCreateStudio@gmail.com 
We also have a calligraphy course that will launch in a few weeks – this will be an online calligraphy course!  These will go along with our current selection of calligraphy workbooks here —-> https://letter-create.myshopify.com/
