What you'll learn in this calligraphy & hand lettering class:

Join us for one of our most popular CraftJam Academy workshops, now updated into two sessions. Learn the basic techniques of hand lettering and experiment with creating your own unique style.

Hand lettering can be simply defined as “the art of drawing letters” - it is a specific combination of letterforms crafted for single use, often hand-drawn, with pens, graphite or brushes.

In 2 sessions our JamMaster will introduce you to the basic techniques of hand lettering and guide you in adding decoration and detail to your letters.

The curriculum:
Session 1: Introduction to Hand Lettering
  • Introduction to lettering styles
  • Defining the difference between typography, calligraphy, and lettering
  • Tips for successful pencil sketches
  • Draw script, sans serif, and serif
Session 2: Advanced Techniques + Defining Your Unique Lettering Style
  • Advanced techniques on designing and embellishing letters
  • Learn how to take inspiration from hand lettering examples
  • Tricks for adding drop shadows
  • Define & practice your own unique style of hand lettering
This class is beginner-friendly; no experience necessary! We will have all the supplies and materials ready for you. Also, we are BYOB friendly, so bring a drink of your choice.

After completing the class, use these hand lettering techniques for stationery, unique signage and even gifts for friends. With practice, you’ll be able to expand on your hand lettering skills for social media, blogs, small business signage and more!

School Notes:
We are BYOB friendly! Crafting is paired best with your favorite drink of choice! But, you must be 21 or over. Younger? Just have a mocktail. No one will notice ;)

Question from Melanie L.
What if I can't make one of the classes in the series? Are there options for rescheduling?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The school advises the students to select a series where all dates can work. The sessions must be completed in order, so if a student misses the second session, the student must switch the entirety of the sessions to the new group. The school understands that things come up and rescheduling cannot be avoided last minute sometimes. However, with prior knowledge of other commitments, the school prefer students commit to what workshops that fit their availability.
Question from Hilary K.
Do you need to have good ‘regular’ handwriting to take this class? It looks like so much fun but my writing is so bad I’m afraid I won’t get anything out of it.
Answer from Kristle C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Hilary! This class is beginner-friendly, therefore all levels of handwriting are accepted. Thanks!
Question from Stephanie D.
If the class does not fill up, or if only a few people end up signing up, will the class be canceled/rescheduled?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Stephanie! That's right, the CraftJam will notify us if they will need to cancel or reschedule the class and we'll notify the students as soon as possible. Hope this helps!

Loved this class!! Jessie was an awesome teacher. Super cute, talented, clear, and easy to learn from. 3 weeks also felt like the perfect amount of time for what we learned. Definitely interested in taking more CraftJam classes in the future!
