Add to your current lettering toolkit with our Modern Lettering Workshop.
Working with beautifully versatile paint pens, you'll learn a number of stylistic alphabets that can also be used with any other drawing tool, including brush and dip pens. You will be shown how to create and have the opportunity to practice elaborate flourish lowercase letters, stylish elongated capitals, a playful, upright lowercase script and an eye-catching inline uppercase, as well as typographic ornaments and ideas on how to decorate your lettering.
This is all about learning through doing: you'll have a choice from a huge selection of beautiful paper samples in a range of different weights, lovely colours, blank cards, tags, bookmarks, etc. to create your own hand lettered pieces to take home with you. Paint pens work on almost any surface: glass, wood, ceramic, fabric... the possiblities are endless!
Each student will receive:
• Two lettering pens
• A set of guidesheets
• 5 practice sheets
• Your choice from a selection of paper, card, tags in different weights and colours
All equipment will be provided and you'll get to keep your pens so you can practice at home.
When: Tuesday 25th June 2019, 10.30am to 12.00pm
Where: Walcot Chapel - just around the corner from our shop at 134 Walcot Street, Bath.
Is there an age limit for the workshop?
Anyone can attend our workshops, though unfortunately we do not allow children under 12. Those under 16 we do request are accompanied by an adult. Please do get in touch if you'd like to discuss.
What should I bring?
You don't need anything - we'll provide everything you need for using in the workshop.
What are my transport/parking options getting to you?
There is parking in Bath in several locations - the nearest to us would be the Podium car park or the Cattlemarket car park. Train services to Bath Spa are very regular and the walk to Walcot Chapel takes around 25 minutes.
Please ensure you can attend the workshop before booking, as tickets for the On Paper Festival are non-refundable and non-transferable. If you are ill, shipwrecked, or unable to attend for any other reason, I’m afraid we are unable to swap your date, though you are more than welcome to find a friend that can take your place.
In the rare circumstance we are unable to run the workshop your ticket will be valid to book onto another workshop.
