Intro to Calligraphy: Faux Lettering
April 25 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm$90
Make A Hand Lettered Wooden Sign!
Calligraphy is a beautiful form of artistry that easily adds elegance to any card,sign, or home decor piece. If you want to practice calligraphy but don’t know where to begin, this is the perfect class to get started. Faux lettering is a fun, easy beginner’s form of calligraphy that uses a writing technique to imitate the thick and thin strokes of traditional calligraphy. The beautiful thing about faux lettering is that (unlike traditional calligraphy) you can write faux lettering with virtually any writing tool, that leads to lots of practice time!
Each participant will receive the following items to use during the class and take home afterwards:
- one acrylic paint pen (white)
- one charcoal pencil (white)
- one regular marker
- one regular HB pencil
- one lettering practice guide
- one pre stained wooden sign ready for you to write on!
Duration: 2 hours – you must arrive 15 minutes before the start time to participate
12:00pm – 2:00pm
Maximum # of Participants: 8
Project: Hand Lettered Wooden Sign

Come to our workshop if:
- You’re a D.I.Y Bride looking to make some beautiful wedding signs
- You’re looking for a fun hobby that is easy to practice almost anywhere
- You want to express your creativity
Participants will learn how to write each letter of the alphabet using faux lettering and they will learn how to write onto a wood surface.
By the end of the class, participants will feel comfortable with faux lettering and know the appropriate steps to take before lettering onto a wood surface. All participants will also complete their very own hand lettered wooden sign to take home!
