HOLIDAY LETTERING CLASS and WORKSHOP
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2018

Brenna Rudary of Brenna Claire Calligraphy will be here to teach the basics of hand lettering
and lead you in making holiday decor and gift items! Register HERE >

In this fun night-out, we’ll go over hand lettering basics and drills that will set the foundation for lettering. I’ll spend time reviewing tips and tricks together as a class and will also be able to walk around and work with you one-on-one! No experience required. Anyone can learn to write beautifully and master hand lettering, calligraphy, and other forms of writing. Once we’ve practiced, we’ll start creating holiday gifts and goodies. (Please note this class does not include pointed-pen/dip pen calligraphy instruction.)

Each student will receive:

  • 1 hard-tip marker
  • 1 Tombow Dual Brush Pen
  • 1 Sakura Pigma Micron Pen
  • 1 Pencil
  • Practice sheets for during class and additional to practice at home.

In this Santa’s Lettering Workshop, we’ll be making:

  • Acrylic Ornaments lettered with your favorite quote, lyrics, or even your monogram. Create whatever you’d like! I’ll also have templates available for you to trace over.
  • Handlettered gift tags. Your friends and family won’t want to open their gifts once they see your beautiful creation on their gift!
  • 5×7 Holiday Art Print. We’ll make beautiful metallic gold art prints lettered with a holiday quote or lyric. Each student will also receive a small wooden stand that will display their art print.

Holiday Lettering Class and Workshop: $40
