13-14 July 2019
This two-day workshop introduces the tools and techniques used in brush lettering. It is suitable for everyone that has an interest in lettering and starts from the basics so complete beginners are welcome. More experienced letterers wanting to learn new styles and techniques for their commercial and personal work such as logos, signage and typographic art pieces will also gain a lot from the workshop.
You’ll learn the basic strokes needed to gain control of the brushes to create various letter widths as well as working with the paint consistency and flow; brush types; different lettering styles. You’ll see inspiring demonstrations of Barbara’s master brush skills and Barbara will assist everyone to make sure they feel comfortable holding and manipulating the various brush sizes, and encourage you to develop your own individuality when lettering with a brush.
You’ll take away your very own Brush Lettering Kit including a special lettering brush and practice guides, all in a personalised folder hand lettered by Barbara, alongside all of your work from the weekend plus a final project demonstrating your skills. You’ll also get FREE access to the Learn Brush Lettering online course, and the private Facebook group, so you can continue your practice at home after the workshop with 12 days of videos and 35 guidesheets. (If you can’t make it to the workshop, Shillumni can also get $100 off the online course).
