Casey Schuurman is a big believer in beginning by hand. Her go-to design partner-in-crime is hand done lettering — it’s charming, expressive and instantly customises with handcrafted flair.
Brush Script Lettering is a versatile tool to have in your repertoire, and once you know the basics, different treatments can be applied to create countless styles! This workshop will guide you through all the need to know fundamentals of handcrafted typography and brush script lettering. For the first part of the class, we will focus on the set of basic strokes that combine to create a hand lettered alphabet — as well as how to hold and angle the Tombow brush pen. The focus will then shift to what makes good brush lettering, consistency, various styles and embellishments.
You’ll walk away with an improved knowledge of typography and brand new handmade skills to apply to anything from posters, cards, personal projects and beyond.
All lettering lovers welcome! This workshop covers the basics so you can achieve a good understanding of technique to improve on at home. No prior experience necessary.

The Brush Lettering class was fantastic. Casey did a great job of explaining the basics and offering helpful feedback when needed, and help make the class fun and engaging.
Casey was a great teacher. I enjoyed her approach and would thoroughly recommend her. Overall I was really impressed with how much we were able to cover in the 2.5 hour class. It gave us a solid grounding and equipped us with the tools to continue on in our own time. It would be cool to have a follow-up class for intermediate lettering techniques.
I enjoyed this class on brush lettering skills. Casey made it very easy and comfortable and gave practical advise on the techniques she used. It is a start to explore other workshops or go solo in developing your own styles. I will definitely recommend it and will look into developing a more thorough and intensive training in the future.
