Hand Lettering (or faux calligraphy) is the art of creating beautiful and bespoke cards, pictures, signs, posters, invitations and wall art. In this class, we will be going through all the basics of creating an easy calligraphy-based font with lots of flourishes and embellishments to make your own piece of art!
In the morning we will go through a faux-calligraphy technique that anyone can use. We’ll bring you through the whole alphabet and you’ll have time to practice. We’ll move onto a number of flourishes and embellishments such as banners, dividers, and a range of floral accents.
In the afternoon we will then help you design and create your very own piece. We’ll advise you on theme, placement, and content.
