Learn 'Lettering From Scratch' with Wanissa in a 3-hour workshop suitable for anyone with an interest in lettering. With no previous experience or knowledge in lettering required, this workshop is fitting for beginners and will also benefit designers who might be looking to expand their skills.
The class begins with an introduction to basic strokes, spacing and line weight, followed by the fundamentals of letterforms through demonstrations of the lowercase and uppercase alphabets.
Attendees will be intrigued by how, with the right techniques, a huge variety of lettering styles can be achieved by using just one water pen. We will show you how variables like texture, speed, and pressure can determine the look of your lettering.
At the end of the class, you will be able to apply the new skills and knowledge you have learnt to create a take-home piece on a card. There will be lots of demonstrations, practice time and hands-on assistance throughout the class.
You will also be given a take-home kit so that you can keep practicing at home (valued at $20.00).
Wanissa is an ex-graphic designer who ventured into lettering because of the meditative effect it has on her.
In late 2015, Wanissa quit her full-time design job of 4 years to pursue her passion for lettering and illustration. She’s been lettering full-time since, currently operating from her home-studio North Melbourne.
Her past clients include Frankie Magazine, Nike, Pottermore.com, Bonds, Mimco, Savage Interactive for Adobe ProCreate, Nooklyn, Bespoke Letterpress, Text Publishing and many more.
Wanissa is one in four of The Letterettes (www.theletterettes.com), a lettering quartet represented by The Jacky Winter Group (www.jackywinter.com). She loves lettering and loves sharing her craft with others.
