This workshop will guide you through the fundamentals of creating Brush Script, a technique developed during the 20th century. It’s sophisticated, expressive and allows you to personalise the style for your own typographic projects.
We will begin by grasping the basic strokes of Brush Script, which will allow you to gradually develop beautifully letterforms based on these strokes. You will be guided through handy tips and techniques to create the most ideal letters, in terms of weight, shape, space and visual pattern.
These key skills are paramount to creating elegant, flowing Brush Script, which by the end of the workshop, will be applied to words of your choice.
Participants will take away an improved knowledge of how to use hand-lettering skills to create and enhance meaning, plus a brand new skill to use for posters, cards and other lettering and design projects, equipped with the essential skills to understand and create typography with flair and meaning. Perfect for designers and type lovers.
You will also get to keep your Brush Script ally – the mighty Tombow brush pen!
