What you'll learn in this calligraphy & hand lettering class:

Learn the basic techniques of hand lettering in our beginner-friendly Hand Lettering two session WebJam, hosted online via Zoom.

Learn techniques of hand lettering in our two session Beginner Hand Lettering WebJam, hosted online via Zoom. Part 1 will introduce basic techniques and Part 2 will provide an opportunity to build on what you learned in the first session.

Hand lettering can be simply defined as “the art of drawing letters” - it is a specific combination of letterforms crafted for single use, often hand-drawn, with pens, graphite or brushes. Our JamMaster will introduce you to the basic techniques of hand lettering and guide you in adding decoration and detail to your letters.

In Part 1, you will learn:

  • Introduction to lettering styles
  • Defining the difference between typography, calligraphy, and lettering
  • Tips for successful pencil sketches
  • Draw script, sans serif, and serif

In Part 2, you will learn:

  • Advanced techniques on designing and embellishing letters
  • To take inspiration from hand lettering examples
  • Tricks for adding drop shadows using a perspective grid
  • Working with curved baselines and and lettering within a shape
  • Designing basic layouts for hand lettered compositions
  • Define and practice your own unique style of hand lettering

This class is beginner-friendly; no experience necessary! After completing both sessions, use these hand lettering techniques for stationery, unique signage, bullet journaling, and even gifts for friends. With practice, you’ll be able to expand on your hand lettering skills for social media, blogs, small business signage and more!
