Brush Lettering - Christmas Edition


Next Available: 28 Nov 6:30PM
3.5 hours

Description

This class is taught by Casey Schuurman, an emerging Typographer and Lettering artist and recent graduate of Melbourne's Old School New School for Design and Typography Program in Type Design and Hand Lettering. 

This workshop will guide you through the fundamentals of Brush Script - grasping the basic strokes used for developing beautifully balanced letterforms before diving in to making some fun and festive hand-lettered greeting cards!

Brush Script is a technique developed in the American advertising industry during the 20th century. It’s sophisticated, expressive and allows you to personalise your own typographic projects with some handcrafted flair.

You'll walk away with an improved knowledge of applying hand-lettering skills which can be used for a range of other lettering and design projects, plus a swag of hand-lettered Christmas goodies. You also get to keep your Brush Script ally – the mighty Tombow brush pen!

About Casey Schuurman 

Casey Schuurman is an emerging Typographer and Lettering artist and recent graduate of Melbourne's Old School New School for Design and Typography Program in Type Design and Hand Lettering. She has a love for all things poetic, ironic and involving wordplay, especially when brought to life with hand done, expressive Typography. To her, Type is the perfect intersection between illustration and design, allowing anyone to work seamlessly between their hands and the screen. OSNS became Casey’s second home this year, a space where she could further hone her handcrafted skills and meet likeminded creatives who share this somewhat geeky passion.

The first few steps in brush lettering, it was probably a little expensive for what I got out of it, but not far off the mark, maybe $65 -$70 would be more like it. The instructor was lovely, she could talk a little bit louder, I missed a few words when she was explaining things. I did enjoy the class, it was a pity the other participants didn't interact with each other much (on our table anyway). Yes I'd recommend it to anyone who was interested in the very first basics of brush lettering.

I learned a lot of brush script technique from this class. The teacher , Casey Schuurman is really nice! She helped each person in class and answers a lot of my questions about lettering. It was really worth it from my point of view, and the most exciting part is when we started to make our DIY lettering wrapping paper! It was so much fun!! Would do it again if i have the chance to do it.
