What you'll do

We will dive into the elegant art of Hand-lettering. Similar to calligraphy in style, yet different in materials, lettering only requires basic washable markers, sharpies, or your favorite pen. We will begin by exploring the basic strokes of lettering. From there we will examine different styles to diversify our artwork. Once we feel comfortable with some of the basics, we will begin lettering words and longer quotes. Ultimately, you will create a card or small poster that you feel proud of, and that represents you well.

Hey, I'm Kindred--elementary and high school teacher by day and master hand-letterer by night! If you were to ever get your hands on one of my childhood journals, you will spot my sweet attempts as "calligraphy" that I completed at school with any sort of sparkly and sharpened pencil. Once I truly learned the art of lettering, I could not be stopped from crafting on every blank surface--other than the walls. As stress relief, I mastered lettering in my time as an undergraduate at Wellesley College and a graduate student at Harvard University. From cards for friends to posters for classrooms to the pages of my own journal, I enjoy using pens, watercolors, markers--any sort of writing utensils--to artistically present my favorite quotes and sayings or just my love for those around me.

This experience is a steal- you have to book it today! Kindred wonderfully teaches you the basics of lettering so you can easily keep practicing once the hour is through. The hour flew by and I wish it could have lasted forever!

It was pleasure time I could spend with Kindred!! キンドレッドと楽しい時間を過ごせました! I don’t use alphabets in ordinary life because I’m Japanese so I wanted to get the knowledge about shapes and flow of hand lettering. Actually, small tips can be worked for my art piece a lot and I could learn it from her. I will try to combine this experience with my art classes and design projects!! 普段アルファベットを使わずに生活しているのでレタリングの文字の流れや形について知りたくて参加しました。実は少しのヒントで自分の文字が一気に良くなる事を彼女から学びました。仕事に取り入れられるよう練習していこうと思いました!

I enjoyed meeting Kindred and learning about lettering. The hour went by very quickly and as I was the only participant, our session was very casual and personalized. I discovered a new hobby that is very relaxing and useful.

This was a really lovely experience that was calming and made me excited to keep lettering for friends when I write them letters and postcards. Kindred was so patient and gave us great advice and feedback throughout and I felt like I made a new friend :) highly recommend trying this!

More tips

The best set up for this experience would be to use your device and put it so that you have both hands free. Lettering requires working on any hard surface like a table, clipboard, desk, etc. I am looking forward to creating art together.
