Sometimes, you only need a few words for a greeting card or a poster, but learning a complete alphabet could be time-consuming. The magic of Lettering is that you create only the letters you need, changing shapes and combining their sizes as needed.

Looking for inspiration in letters from magazines, signages and buildings, together with flowers and foliage, we will combine letters and drawings to create the most beautiful and creative presents for family and friends using fine liners, colouring pencils and watercolours.

You don't need any previous knowledge or experience to attend this workshop. It aims to discover and develop your decorative ideas and produce a colourful postcard to take home.

During our workshop, we will explore the following topics:

  • Collecting images for inspiration and tracing
  • Step-by-step instructions to draw letters and images
  • Explore different combinations of letters and illustrations
  • And finally, we will create an A5 poster or postcard to take home
