Brush Lettering with Alice Gabb | 21st December 7pm-9pm
Add a little extra to your Christmas decorations, cards and gifts this year with this brush lettering workshop.
Join stationery designer and calligrapher, Alice Gabb, for a beginner’s guide to brush lettering.
The course starts from scratch with an introduction to brush lettering techniques. Following this, Alice takes you through some practice exercises and allows you to experiment with letter forms. By the end of the lesson you will be able to write your name, a favourite quote or even some words that mean a lot using the art of brush strokes.
Bring an eye for detail and some extra patience for your lettering practice. Brush lettering is harder for left handers to learn, but it is possible!
