Join us for one of our most popular CraftJam Academy workshops, now updated into two sessions. Learn the basic techniques of hand lettering and experiment with creating your own unique style.

Event Details

Hand lettering can be simply defined as “the art of drawing letters” - it is a specific combination of letterforms crafted for single use, often hand-drawn, with pens, graphite or brushes.

In 2 sessions our JamMaster will introduce you to the basic techniques of hand lettering and guide you in adding decoration and detail to your letters.

The curriculum:

Session 1: Introduction to Hand Lettering (8/14/2019)

Introduction to lettering styles

Defining the difference between typography, calligraphy, and lettering

Tips for successful pencil sketches

Draw script, sans serif, and serif

Session 2: Advanced Techniques + Defining Your Unique Lettering Style (8/21/2019)

Advanced techniques on designing and embellishing letters

Learn how to take inspiration from hand lettering examples

Tricks for adding drop shadows

Define & practice your own unique style of hand lettering

This class is beginner-friendly; no experience necessary! We will have all the supplies and materials ready for you. Also, we are BYOB friendly, so bring a drink of your choice.

After completing the class, use these hand lettering techniques for stationery, unique signage and even gifts for friends. With practice, you’ll be able to expand on your hand lettering skills for social media, blogs, small business signage and more!
