This 3-hour class is perfect for those who are new to typography, designers who are looking to improve their typographic awareness, and switch off from the fast-paced digital world and immerse in something tactile and time-honoured. This introductory class is a key entry point for those who have entertained the idea of hand lettering and felt unsure about investing in a whole day or whole course. It is an ideal taster to a whole addictive world of letter crafting! This class cannot teach you everything, but it will get you started so that you can continue.
You will work with traditional brush pen to learn two styles: Brush Script , which is the basis of a contemporary design language and Single Speed stroke. The traditional tool for Brush lettering and Brush Script is a regular pointed brush and paint. BUT first, we recommend that beginners start off using a brush pen. Just like trainer wheels, the brush pen is much easier to control. For the inexperienced, the challenges of using a real brush and paint can be daunting, and we want to build your confidence first. First learning how to draw the letters curves and shapes is essential as it builds confidence and scaffolds your learning, before dealing with the additional challenge of brush and paint.
