- Hosted in Your Home: Depending on the workshop topic, the number of people, and other details, these usually cost around $12-18/person.
The Methods of Lettering
The following are methods of lettering you may see workshops covering!
HAND-LETTERING OR "FAUX CALLIGRAPHY"
This method uses a normal writing or drawing utensil to manually color in the thick and thins lines that are used to create calligraphy.
BRUSH PEN LETTERING
Brush pens are markers made with flexible or even real brush tips so that they are pressure-sensitive. Light drawing creates thinner lines and heavy pressing creates thicker lines.
Brush lettering uses a paintbrush dipped in ink to create calligraphy. Much like brush pens, their flexible bristles make for very thin and thick lines, but they are often harder to control.
POINTED PEN & INK
This traditional method of lettering uses a flexible nib dipped in ink to create the thick and thin lines used in calligraphy. Like brush lettering, quill pens are more difficult to control and require frequent dipping.
