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

Handmade design is booming in popularity, and with good reason. These designs carry their own sense of creativity and personality while maintaining and a clean design. Jen will show you how to guide your steady hand across the page as you learn the basics of hand lettering. With a little bit of guidance, you’ll be able to apply the basic principles of lettering to your own designs, and you’ll walk away from the class with your own inked lettering.

This class will show you the basics of hand lettering and give you the basis to create your own designs. In this session, you will draw a grid, set a baseline, determine lettering angles, and work through your own curves and ligatures. 

Important Thing to Note:
By the end of the session, you will have your own handmade piece as well as the knowledge and tools to create your own designs.

I would definitely recommend this class to anyone. It was super informative and really inspired me to get the ball rolling with my hand lettering. Jen was great and Craftsman Ave. was a really fun environment to work in.
