Chalk Lettering for Beginners

September 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am

$70 – $75

Chalkboard signs are everywhere these days – at weddings and parties, on the sidewalks outside businesses, and in homes, where they make fun and unique home decor. Why not do it yourself? The key to beautiful chalkboard signs, is artful lettering, which, I guarantee, you can do. You don’t even have to have good penmanship; I promise!

In this Beginning Chalk Lettering Workshop, we’ll focus on the basics. You’ll learn, letter by letter, a modern calligraphy script, how to join your letters, and how to develop a faux calligraphy script using your own handwriting. You’ll also learn some tricks to designing your own fonts and mixing different fonts together on a single board. We’ll practice writing and embellishing techniques, and then we’ll take your new skills to the chalkboard! Materials provided. You’ll leave with your practice board, a chalk lettering kit (including chalk, chalk marker, eraser, sharpener and more), an instructional packet, and access to lots of free downloadable content for more chalkboard exploration.
