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 pair—one softer tip and one harder tip. (available in stock/online at Walmart
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.
