Brush Lettering Basics

For the August morning program, Karon will introduce us to the world of “brush lettering.” Those 2 words can mean many different things to different people, so Karon will narrow it down for us with an introduction to the various types of brushes that can be used for lettering (there are many!).  Then we will learn how to hold the brush to get the desired thick/thin lines so distinctive of calligraphy. After feeling comfortable with that, Karon will teach us some basic letters to start our journey. Zoom link will be emailed to members the day before the meeting.

For the afternoon workshop we will deep dive into the details of each lower-case letter. The workshop will last from 1 to 4 pm and will cost $20 for members and $35 for non-members. Registration link is below; Zoom will also be available.

Supplies: For the morning program you will need the Tombow Fudenosuke black pen; they are sold as a pairone softer tip and one harder tip.  (available in stock/online at Walmart and MC Arts.), a pencil/eraser, ruler. Paper will be furnished.

For the afternoon workshop, if you have a pad of Canson XL marker paper bring it (optional, but available in stock at MC Arts). Karon will have a supply of the paper for sharing.  Also bring a glue stick, ruler, and scissors. If you want to add some color to your lettering, consider a set of the Tombow Fudenosuke Colors in stock from MC Arts. Also good are the small tip brush pens from Pentel Brush Tip Sign pens. (Not recommended are the larger Tombow Dual-Brush pens.) Other brands of small brush pens that you already have will also work well.

 Karon will provide: Cardstock for a project that will hang, string/yarn and beads, hole punch, and two-word phrases for the project.
