Do you draw brush script with a pencil? Does your lettering lack the spark and flow you’re seeing on Instagram? Do you want to improve but haven't carved out the time or commitment to stock the right tools? Let’s face it… much lettering lacks impact because it defies the physics of calligraphy and uses the wrong materials. Calligraphy Boot Camp will suit you up, shape you up, and develop muscles you never knew you had!
In this two-day hands-on workshop, you’ll build up the muscle memory and use the right tools to learn five different calligraphy styles that will take your hand lettering skills to the next level. It won’t be easy. There may be tears. But you’ll emerge a stronger designer with a better understanding of historical and contemporary letterforms, and new strength to back it up. Day One will introduce you to the tools and the basics; Day Two continues the lessons with your newfound calligraphy skills.
This workshop is for beginners with little experience using calligraphy tools, but intermediate lettering artists are also welcome to attend. Studio assistants guarantee a 6:1 student/teacher ratio, and enrollment is limited to 18, so register today to reserve your spot. Change doesn’t happen overnight but we sure can try; this workshop requires a two-night commitment to get desired results.
Class fee includes two-day registration, all the tools you’ll need and a light supper. Pick up your kit on the day of the workshop.
This workshop is presented in association with Phoenix Design Week. See the full lineup at phxdw.com
