What you'll learn in this calligraphy & hand lettering class:

Introduction to Modern Calligraphy - Brush Lettering

Calligraphy isn’t a lost art, it’s just an art that you haven’t learned yet. In this class you'll learn all the techniques you need to make the thick and thin lines that creates the beautiful letter forms of modern brush calligraphy.

No prior experience is required! The skills you’ll learn can be applied to cards, invitations, signs, or just to give your penmanship a little pizzazz. You’ll even leave with your own hand-drawn greeting card, a brush pen, and a workbook to continue practicing your newfound skills. And don’t worry about what you need to bring, we’ll provide all the necessary materials to get you started.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • Lettering tools and how to use them
  • Basic strokes of modern brush lettering
  • How to compose both upper case and lower case letters
  • How to connect letters to form words and phrases
  • Tips and tricks for perfecting your lettering practice
  • How to create a lettered card for your final piece

Comfortable clothing, apron, beverages and snacks, a blanket if we're sitting on the grass.

Reviewed by Antoinette L. on 2/9/2020
Excellent session; Jade was terrific - highly skilled and knowledgeable - one can say she is a "master" level teacher and craft person; very engaging, encouraging and caring about the students in her class. She even makes herself very available after class for additional questions and tips. This was my first course house experience and I thought it was top notch. She inspired me to really want to advance my own skills in modern calligraphy through daily practice and work.
