- explore the phenomenon of modern brush lettering and its relationship to calligraphy, to hand-lettering and to cursive
- practice writing words or names of your choice with brush pens
- test drive a variety of brush pen sizes and brands

The following supplies are included:
- a large and a small brush pen to keep
- a folder of drill sheets
- smooth printer paper
- tracing paper
- brush pens for communal use during the workshop

Please bring:
- words, names or short phrases you would like to letter
an eagerness to learn and play

You will go home with:
- the fundamentals of a new skill set whose applications are endless - greeting cards, home decor, social media graphics, you name it!
