What you'll learn in this calligraphy & hand lettering class:

Learn the basic techniques of hand lettering in our beginner-friendly Hand Lettering two session WebJam, hosted online via Zoom.

Learn techniques of hand lettering in our two session Beginner Hand Lettering WebJam 1 + 2 on June 21 * 28, hosted online via Zoom. Part 1 will introduce basic techniques and Part 2 will provide an opportunity to build on what you learned in the first session.

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