Brush Lettering

Led by Salina Gatto

Brush lettering is a modern form of calligraphy that can be practiced everyday and even on the go. Just put a brush in your bag and you’re all set.

It is not only a way to make beautiful notes for people to make them feel good but a great way to practice mindfulness.

This workshop includes a personalised take home kit of a notebook, a brush pen and some extra heavyweight paper.

In the 4 hours you have together, you will be tackling exercises of the basic forms of brush calligraphy while being able to add your own personal flairs once you establish the basics.

By the end, you will be able to write your name, self-love quote and or address a letter for someone you love.

Salina is Looking forward to lettering with you all.
