About the Course

Let’s explore the magic of fabulously creative brush lettering pens!

There’s something very accessible about brush pen calligraphy and brush lettering – part of the fun is colour blending – your tutor, Claire, will show you how to paint simple words in sunset colours!

You’ll have a selection of brush lettering pens to use on the day – bring a friend and you can swap your pens during the class for more variation in your lettering! It’s a very relaxed and friendly class: even if you don’t come along with a friend, you’ll be sitting next to someone lovely and you’re bound to make a new friend or two on the day!

On the day we’ll write –

• Alphabet sample sheets
• Beautifully blended, colourful words
• A quote or motivational print for you to frame at home

There will be endless tea and cake available throughout the workshop.

There’ll be a little pop-up shop at the end so you can buy colourful inks, spare nibs and penholders, books and more worksheets if you like. Cash only so please bring extra spendybuttons for this!

Class sizes are limited so everyone has some personal tuition – and no matter what your skill level (we all learn at different speeds) Claire will help you along the way!

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
