What you'll do

We will dive into the elegant art of Hand-lettering. Similar to calligraphy in style, yet different in materials, lettering only requires basic washable markers, sharpies, or your favorite pen. We will begin by exploring the basic strokes of lettering. From there we will examine different styles to diversify our artwork. Once we feel comfortable with some of the basics, we will begin lettering words and longer quotes. Ultimately, you will create a card or small poster that you feel proud of, and that represents you well. Great for groups! Great for teams! An awesome experience for all.
Other things to note
The best set up for this experience would be to use your device and put it so that you have both hands free. Lettering requires working on any hard surface like a table, clipboard, desk, etc. I am looking forward to creating art together.

Hey, I'm Kindred--elementary and high school teacher by day and master hand-letterer by night! If you were to ever get your hands on one of my childhood journals, you will spot my sweet attempts as "calligraphy" that I completed at school with any sort of sparkly and sharpened pencil. Once I truly learned the art of lettering, I could not be stopped from crafting on every blank surface--other than the walls. As stress relief, I mastered lettering in my time as an undergraduate at Wellesley College and a graduate student at Harvard University. From cards for friends to posters for classrooms to the pages of my own journal, I enjoy using pens, watercolors, markers--any sort of writing utensils--to artistically present my favorite quotes and sayings or just my love for those around me.

I’m new at hand lettering and this class was a perfect started class. Kindred helped me create beautiful lettering using my own handwriting. I appreciated the time she spent critiquing my work and making suggestions on ways to improve. And what a bargain price!!

Before this experience, I had no idea that hand lettering and calligraphy were two different things. And I was too scared to really try either one of them. But, Kindred did a great job of explaining the differences between the two and breaking down the steps to hand lettering. I also really loved Kindred's energy, and am looking forward to carrying some of their excitement forward into my own hand lettering attempts!
