Brush Lettering Workshop - Thursday 29th June 2023 10.00am to 12.30pm
Join us for the On Paper Festival Brush Lettering workshop. In this accessible and creative workshop, you'll learn the art of brush lettering, creating your own personalised bookmark with matching tassel of your choice.
Claire will introduce you to the fundamental techniques of brush lettering and guide you through the alphabet, helping you find your own voice within this casual, modern style. As we walk through the individual letters, you'll also be shown how to connect your letterforms, the basics of letterspacing and how to vary your letters.
We'll be using one of our favourite brush pens, the wonderful Tombow Fudenosuke soft tip and you'll also have the chance to try an array of brush pens with different flexibilities and colours.
Using your new skill, you'll then be offered a selection of coloured card to create your own personalised bookmark, with your choice of tassel to complement your lettering.
Each student will receive:
- 2 x Tombow brush pens (1 Fudenosuke Soft Tip + 1 ABT Dual)
- 3 x Meticulous Ink guidesheets
- 5 x Meticulous Ink brush lettering practice sheets
- 1 x Plain paper sheet
- Your choice of bookmark card, complete with eyelet and tassel of your choice!
All equipment will be provided, along with guidance from Claire.
When: Thursday 29th June 2023, 10.00am to 12.30pm
Where: Walcot Chapel - just around the corner from our shop at 134 Walcot Street, Bath.
