Event description

Description

We are introducing a new series of workshops - CraftJam Academy. These workshops will consist of 3 to 4 sessions and are taught by experts in their field who will make sure you thoroughly learn a new skill or deepen the knowledge you already have.

With the launch of CraftJam Academy, we are starting off with the Lettering Workshop series. Lettering can be simply defined as “the art of drawing letters” - it is a specific combination of letterforms crafted for a single use, often hand-drawn, with pens, graphite or brushes.

In 3 sessions designer Jessie Katz will introduce you to the basic techniques of lettering and guide you in creating a unique hand-drawn wall-art piece. You will finish the workshop with a tutorial on digitizing your designs.

The curriculum:

1st week - January 30th:

  • Introduction to lettering throughout history

  • Defining the difference between typography, calligraphy, and lettering

  • Techniques on designing and embellishing letters

2nd week - February 6th:

  • Advanced techniques on designing and embellishing letters

  • Explore multiple concepts for your final art piece & start sketching

3rd week - February 13th:

  • Complete your final art piece

  • Introduction to digitizing your lettering

This class is beginner-friendly; no experience necessary! We will have all the supplies and materials ready for you. Also, we are BYOB friendly, so bring a drink of your choice.

This class is especially good for bloggers, small businesses and anybody working in social media. You’ll finish class with the skills to create unique signage and images that will make your blog and social media sites pop!

Jessie Katz is a talented graphic designer and artist who has plenty of experience in teaching crafts and design. She is also the author of the blog Crafty What Not.
