Watercolour Brush Lettering Workshop

  • West Elm 209 Tottenham Court Rd, London, W1T 7PN (map)


This class is perfect for both beginners and for those who have already some brush lettering experience but would like add to their skills.

*You will be given a complete set of materials to use during the class, including guide sheets, paper, a brush and a palette and paint.

*I will introduce contemporary brush lettering and the many ways you can use it.

*We'll start with exercises to practice making shapes and brush strokes. You'll then practice writing the alphabet, words and phrases with plenty of help and guidance on hand. We will practice how you can use watercolours to create a range of effects including ombre and rainbow lettering.

*By the end of the workshop you'll be well on your way to developing your own unique brush lettering style, and will leave with a framable piece of artwork.
