About This Class

Do you want to create your unique hand lettering style but don't know where to start? Don't worry! Creating your hand lettering style doesn't have to be hard. Just imagine how your lettering will improve when you can come up with your own style instead of copying someone else! Join me in this class as we explore different styles of lettering connections. You will start to notice the little details that you love. It's by combining these details that you create your unique style.

This class is for you if you are a beginner at lettering or you’ve been lettering for a while and can’t seem to feel confident in your letters. You will learn all different styles of lettering connections including my best tips and even come up with your own! I have broken down each type of connection into different groups to make it easier to create a variety of styles for each connection. In the project section of the class, I have included a 9 page workbook for you to download and print at home to practice along with the video lessons. So all you will need is the workbook and a small brush pen like a Pentel touch or a Tombow fudenosuke.

*The workbook can only be downloaded on desktop, not mobile.*

At the end of this class, we will bring it all together and create a word collage with a variety of lettering styles using the techniques that you learned. You may surprise yourself with all the styles you'll be able to come up with!

This class is one of the modules included in Your Confident Lettering Style Course. If you enjoy this Skillshare class, you'll want to check out the complete course. :)
