Hand Lettering 101: Part 1

  • Uptown Art 510 Evernia Street West Palm Beach, FL, 33401 United States (map)

Love hand lettering but don't know where to start the learning process? You are in the right place! This is a two-part introductory level class, so NO experience is needed - all we need is YOU!

In Hand Lettering 101: Part 1, we will cover the basics. We will start with an overview of Hand-Lettering and then get in to what tools to use, Corey's personal method, how she started and where you can go with your new skills! In this class, you will learn and practice a variety of hand lettering techniques and learn Corey's signature faux-calligraphy script. We will go through script letters one by one and move through each letter of the alphabet, learn how to connect letters and add flourishes! Learn how to develop your own style and lettering skills through warm-ups, learned techniques and practice! With Corey's immediate feedback and assistance, you will be well on your way to some awesome lettering!

Materials included in the cost of this class: Corey's custom alphabet guide & letter exemplar, tracing paper, vellum paper and sketch paper to help you grow your practice, and a "swag bag" with lots of goodies including some of Corey's most trusted pens! Other drawing supplies such as pencils, erasers and extra paper will be available to use during the class.

Also included, but free of cost, the opportunity to meet and connect with other creative people, a high potential for laughter and sarcasm, and a Pop-Up Shop with some of Ink Letter Love's most popular items!

 

As always.. all of our classes are BYOB! So feel free to bring in anything you would like to eat or drink while you learn!

**This class is a 2-part intro level class and it is recommended that you attend both sections of this class before taking one of Corey's Intermediate Level classes, such as Envelope Addressing and Lettering on Glass, which will be available in the coming months.

Please be sure to sign up early because seats are very limited!  Must register 24 hours in advance in order to ensure there are enough supplies for everyone. This is a specialty event so no promotion codes will be accepted.

This workshop may be held in our upstairs loft only accessible by stairs.

Part TWO of this workshop will be held on the same day after a short break for lunch!
