April 28h 2018

In this 3 hour Workshop, I will teach you the basics of chalk lettering and helpful tips to understand letter construction, shading, and embellishments. We will dig into the difference between lettering, typography, calligraphy and where does chalk lettering stand. We will revise the fundamentals (anatomy and terminology of letters, etc.) to bring this beautiful – and very popular- art form into your everyday life.

The purpose of this workshop is to walk from the basics of letter-construction while working on a finished piece you can proudly display in your home. Whether you want to spice up your kitchen chalkboard, create custom chalkboards or just for the fun of it, I will help you be happier with how your letters look on a chalkboard.

This workshop has been a true labor of love! I’ve designed an awesome workbook, prepared supporting material and put together the coolest chalk lettering kit (check what’s included below). So you can have the most amazing time and learn a new creative hobby (or business skill, you never know!). Join me and let’s dust letters together!
