What is a hand lettering class like?

raleigh hand lettering class

what we cover

We start with the hand lettering basics and how to create "faux-lligraphy" -- the kind of modern calligraphy you can create with ANY writing tool!

We then go over techniques to create thick and thin strokes with basic markers.

Then we graduate to Ashley's absolute favorite paper and brush pen!

We finish up with design tips, introduce another brush pen, go over how to create beautiful pieces of lettered art at home, addressing envelopes, and fun extras like lettering in all caps and drawing greenery and banners.  

The classes are small enough for you to go at your own pace and for Ashley to help each individual along the way. We also have a short break for some yummy treats!
