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.

Millie was great - friendly, approachable, patient and encouraging. I learned how to use the amazing pens - which we got for free with a pad too - and got some great tips from Millie. The fact that the in person groups are small is great for me - as easier to follow and less intimidating than in bigger groups to ask questions.

For me the venue was easy to get to by car and plenty of parking available.

All in all, I was very pleased with the session and felt it was good value for money.

Thanks :-)

Teacher was good, allowing time for me to practice, using thick and thin process. Didn’t feel rushed

I enjoyed the hour I spent in the workshop and found it relaxing and the staff member very pleasant, but I think it is somewhat missold. You are essentially given a box containing brush pens, an A4 pad, a hardback notebook and brown paper gift tags and spend the hour copying lettering from some sheets with sample letters printed on it. Could have done this at home for 1/4 of the price and would not have paid for filler products I did not want or need. Has put me off booking other workshops.

I had a very enjoyable hour learning brush lettering with Donna. She was really chatty and friendly. The materials provided were beyond what I expected. Plenty of bits and pieces to practise with at home . I would recommend this course.
