29 June @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm£58
Come and Join us for a relaxing and fun Botanical Chalkboarding Workshop back here at the lovely Rose Cottage Flower School for another spot of relaxing hand lettering in lovely versatile chalkboarding style!
This time we are looking at the art of Chalk Board lettering alongside learning to draw some lovely chalkboard decorative leaves and botanicals to decorate and enhance your lettering – (well we are at Rose Cottage Floristry!)
We will learn firstly how to create cool modern calligraphy script lettering along with some contrasting style alphabets and ‘shadow’ lettering;we will firstly starts ketching out in pen/chalk and then onto using fabulous pro chalk pens (so lovely and satisfying to use!)
No lettering or drawing skills are necessary – we will start using lettering ‘templates which we firstly ‘tracedraw’ over (to learn the shape of the letters and familiartise yourself with them) then in similar way using templates; how to draw foliage and flowers to use with your lettering.We then move onto lettering and drawing on larger work, how to use typography and plan your layouts to look attractive and balanced.
A little note to remember!
hand lettering is a lovely relaxed form of calligraphy and is FAR less about precision and perfect letters but so much more about developing the style and personality of your own hand- so relax and enjoy, its great fun!
