Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering

Join us in store and master the basic techniques of on-trend hand lettering!

1 hour Class size 1 to 5     label £25

Discover how easy it is to get started in brush lettering! It’s the perfect way to personalise every project, so learning basic brush lettering techniques is sure to take your creative know-how to a new level.

You won’t need any brush lettering or art experience. The workshop will introduce basic mark-making exercises and simple techniques so that even complete beginners will be able to get to grips with this craft.

By the end of the workshop, you’ll know how to use varying line thicknesses to style your letters and be able to apply that to the whole alphabet. With our Hobbycraft Colleague on hand with expert guidance, you can also learn how to add foliage flourishes with the pens included in your craft kit.

Once the workshop’s over, you’re all set to start personalising papercraft projects and gift wrap designs with your newly acquired brush lettering skills. Add any words and sentiments you choose with stylish letters handwritten by you.

Please note, our workshop spaces in some stores are located in open areas and we will endeavour to minimise interruption from other crafters.

Rachel was very friendly and instructions clear. Really enjoyed course and thought it was very good value, especially being given pens and pad to take away. Hope to use this for card making

Rachel was knowledgeable and inspiring. The venue is perfect and clean, with plenty of space to work. Wanted to try brush lettering for a long time but don' t know how to start with the kit and the techniques. This is my first time, it was fun! Keep practicing and I will master it!

Excellent! Rachel was delightful and a great teacher. She was clear and patient and covered everything we needed to know so we can practice at home. Materials were better than expected too! A full pack of brush pens, a generously sized jotter pad and a tote bag, plus templates. I will definitely be doing more classes if this is the standard. Thank you!

It was a small class which was good as the teacher who was very knowledgeable, could keep an eye on how we were doing and point us in the right direction. The cost included a box containing pens, notebooks etc which was all we needed to get started. The class is ideal for beginners and I would definitely recommend it.
