  • FAQs

    If I'm not artistic, can I still do this class?

    Yes! You don't have to be artistic or have nice handwriting to have success with lettering! Imagine drawing sticks and circles. I teach you how to draw them and practice them over and over again. My own personal hand writing is not pretty or consistent, but my lettering is because of the way I learned it! Which is what I'll teach you!

What my students are saying about the class

"I loved this class! Have been wanting a clear instruction video after playing around with brushpens and youtube tutorials, this is nice and easy to follow with how to load your pen and assemble your dip pen and I felt like my improvement was quite fast! A wonderful class, I just had to stop the video of the alphabet to do full lines of each letter (of course) but now I have the basics down and feel more confident to practice on my own. Thank you!” "This class exceeded my expectations! Thank you!"
