Wednesday October 16th, 2019 from 6pm to 8pm
Modern Hand Lettering with Rachael! We'll have a variety of materials on which to practice and apply your hand lettering skills - think cards, stationary, gift wrapping, place settings, menus, invitations, and more!
Learn true brush lettering with Japanese Sumi ink and a traditional brush. These are Rachael’s go-to brush lettering tools to take your lettering prowess up a notch.
During this make & take workshop, Rachael will guide you through the ins and outs of hand lettering. You'll learn about modern calligraphy, tips and techniques to develop a unique, personal style. The small group class will have plenty of time and scrap paper to practice. Rachael will be teaching various ways to use sumi ink and traditional brushes to achieve a beautiful lettering style of your own.
Everyone will take home their own hand lettering kit including ink, brush, and various materials for all sorts of applications.
