In this workshop you’ll learn the basics of lettering! We’ll cover everything from an introduction to the rules, to practicing different letter styles and learning about hierarchy and composition. Then you’ll get started on your own project by sketching and finishing a phrase of your own choice. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have the knowledge and tools to create your own beautiful lettering pieces.
All materials are included, and you’ll get to take home a set of basic lettering tools and a little booklet with tips and references. All you have to bring is a short phrase (2 to 7 words) that you'd like to visualise - this can be anything from your name to your favourite lyric or quote.
This workshop is suitable for both beginners and those with some knowledge of lettering. There’s a maximum of 6 people attending, so there’ll be plenty of time for one-to-one help during the workshop.
Manolya Isik is a freelance illustrator and letterer from Rotterdam, currently living in London. She’s also part of the SMUG team and looks forward to spending a lovely Sunday afternoon lettering with you.
