Modern Lettering Workshop - Tuesday 27th June 2023 10.00am to 11.30am
Join us for the On Paper Festival Modern Lettering workshop and add to your lettering skillset!
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 lovely paper samples in a range of different weights and colours to create your own hand lettered pieces to take home with you. With everything from blank cards, tags and bookmarks to craft paper and paper gift bags, you'll be equipped with all you need to create and wrap beautifully lettered pieces!
Paint pens work on almost any surface: glass, wood, ceramic, fabric, metal... the possibilities are endless!
Each student will receive:
- 2 x Pilot Pintor pens
- 3 x Meticulous Ink guidesheets
- 4 x Meticulous Ink lettering practice sheets
- Your choice from a huge selection of paper, card, envelopes and tags in different weights and colours, as well as kraft paper and gift bags.
All equipment will be provided, along with guidance from Claire.
When: Tuesday 27th June 2023, 10.00am to 11.30am
Where: Walcot Chapel - just around the corner from our shop at 134 Walcot Street, Bath.

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 this 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.
