About The Event
Materials and Information
It can be hard to get going with a sketchbook so pop in and join my regular sketchbook group whenever you feel like it! This small informal sketchbook group meets every two weeks and provides creative support, tuition, inspirational prompts and guidance to help start or develop your sketchbook practice. By using a sketchbook to record life's events, big and small or as a safe place to experiment and find your inner artist, you can learn a lot about yourself whilst developing your own creative skills. Maybe you want to loosen up, learn to draw, paint, write, collage, experiment...a sketchbook is the place for all that and more!
This session is all about lovely lettering!!
Hand lettering is a skill in it's own right and it can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to adding decorative text to your sketchbook. During this session you will learn a range of easy to use lettering styles to add creative impact to both titles and content text.
Book onto this session and you will receive a zoom link to the live session.
After the event, you will receive a video link of the recording so you don't need to be there live if you prefer to watch and work at a time of your choosing.
