Learn how to hold a brush pen and create the strokes needed for brush lettering. You’ll also learn three techniques for blending, shadowing and stippling and will make your own brush lettered alphabet ready to complete two pieces of art.
A welcome pack with two pens and worksheets will be provided and guidance in composition of your artwork/quote will be given. This workshop is perfect for beginners, or those who have tried Sophie’s modern calligraphy course and want to learn similar, but different skills with Tombow brush pens.
Bring along a quote or favourite lyric you would like to letter.
