Workshop Overview

Monoline lettering is a great way to explore the art of hand lettering without the added challenge of working with complicated tools. In this class we will learn several styles of monoline lettering that use Speedball B-nibs including the Art Nouveau lettering of Rennie Mackintosh, the architectural lettering of Frank Lloyd Wright and others. We will also explore different ways of working with letters that can be applied to other calligraphic styles and tools. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of experience and is ideal for those who are new to lettering arts.
