Description

Join me in my Detroit studio on Sunday, July 28th from 10am to 5pm for a workshop about lettering specifically for social media!

Want to learn how to grow your social media following (and creative business!) with hand lettering?

In 2013, I joined Instagram to share photos of my life with my friends. One day, I posted a shot of some lettering in my sketchbook and noticed that it received more than double the amount of likes than my other photos. Since then, I've been consistently posting snaps of my sketchbook lettering, and it's helped me grow my following from 0 to over 179,000. I truly believe that your sketchbook is one of *the* most powerful and accessible tools you can use to grow your social media following as a designer, and this workshop will show you how. In this full-day workshop, you'll learn how to:

  • craft and pair different lettering styles from scratch

  • lay out dynamic compositions in your sketchbook

  • come up with unique phrases to letter

  • style and photograph the final image

  • grow your social media following organically

  • market your work to your audience



Hosted in my sunny Detroit studio, the full-day workshop will begin with three hours of hands-on lettering instruction and exercises. Alternating between demonstrations and hands-on exercises, you'll put your new skills to work by drawing and inking a finished lettering piece in your sketchbook.

After a lunch break, you'll learn how to style and photograph your final sketchbook image, and I'll share all of the strategies I've used to organically grow my Instagram following to over 179,000. You'll leave with a beautiful, ready-to-share sketchbook image and the skills to maximize its marketing potential on social media.

The price of the workshop also includes:

  • all drawing materials (yours to keep at the end of the class)
  • lunch, snacks and refreshments for the day
  • unlimited compliments and positive affirmations from yours truly



Whether you're professional hand letterer who wants to grow your business or a hobbyist who wants to take their practice to the next level, this workshop is for you!

Building an audience on social media has played such a key part in me finding success for my creative business, and it would be my honor to show you how to do the same.

This is somewhere between a beginner and intermediate level class. By no means do you need to be a lettering whiz, but a basic knowledge of letteforms and some prior practice are required.


Limited to 16 students.

There is one scholarship available for a local (metro Detroit) artist to attend this workshop free of cost. This scholarship was created to give back to the local creative community! To apply, please email a link to your portfolio + a paragraph about why the workshop would be beneficial to you to hello@homsweethom. The winner will be notified 10 days before the workshop date.


Refund policy: Tickets are fully refundable if you give notice up to 7 before the event begins. If you're unable to attend and give notice after the 7 day window has passed, a 50% refund will be issued. No refund will be given after the event date has passed.
