Your class was awesome! I thought you guys had a great, approachable style to teaching. You were very personable and easy going and welcoming. I can’t wait to go to an intermediate class and get more in-depth.
It’s a great course with no expectations. If you have no experience (with hand lettering) you’ll walk away with confidence that you can create beautiful words. If you have experience, you’ll walk away inspired to create some amazing cards, gift tags etc. Amelia and Natasha were great teachers, giving advice and tips when needed.
A huge fan of typography already, your class has inspired me to be more creative and practice, practice, practice! I’m certainly more confident to do more brush lettering. Thank you!
We'd love to work with you!
We’d love to teach lettering at your business, or with your team, bridal party, or group of friends.
Get creative with us at a unique and fun event!
