Whilst I have dabbled in a bit of brush lettering, here and there, I thought it would be good fun to try out one of the workshops on offer from Quill London. Ironically, a week before the workshop, Lucy, (owner of Quill) got in touch with me out of the blue, saying she had seen my work on instagram and wanted to know if I was interested in the the possibility of running calligraphy workshops... but that's another topic - watch this space!!
The brush lettering workshop was held in a lovely little pub near old street with the best name ever - The Blacksmith and the Toffeemaker. Mmmm....toffee.... Illustrators Emma Block and designer/illustrator Teri Muncey walked us through the steps to creating quirky brush lettering. In 2.5 hours, I gained a lot of confidence in my brush lettering skills and it's definitely something I will be incorporating into my work in the future. This weekend I have signed up for a a screen printing workshop, so *maybe* I will show you my new skills in the form of a print!
