Intro to Brush Lettering, 1/4/2021, 7PM

With the rise of Pinterest, DIY projects, and bullet journaling, many have taken up faux calligraphy or brush lettering.  While writing in a near perfect, flowy and bouncy cursive may seem impossible, it’s actually quite easy.  It just takes a pen, a few simple steps, and a lot of practicing.

In this class, you’ll learn the basics of brush lettering or calligraphy.  We’ll go over faux calligraphy that can be done with just about any writing utensil and true brush lettering that can be done with any brush pen of even a regular marker.  

Supplies

There are so many different brush pens and calligraphy markers, it can be hard to know what you actually need, and what you should start out with.  The truth is, you can start out with just about anything.  If you’ve got a piece of paper and a pen, you can letter.  But, if you’re looking to take your lettering to the next level and experiment with some fun new tools, I’ve linked some of my favorites below.

  • Paper
    • Rhodia paper pad size A4; Square (almost looks like graph paper); This is a high quality paper pad that will minimize fraying of your brush pens. The squares make it easy to learn how to size the letters.
  • Pens/Markers
