How to connect the letters together? How to make it look "flowy" and beautiful? We have you covered! We can't wait to dive in and get started!
Take a Look Inside the Course :)
We're Lisa and Addi and we love to letter :)
We created this course after teaching in-person workshops to both small and large audiences (Look for us at Pinners Conference, for example). We always wanted to dive deeper, but a multi-night commitment for our students is tough to do so we came up with the idea to put our instructions online, in High-Def Video. We've added attachments that can be downloaded, materials checklists, and the with our online classroom the instructions are easy to follow.

The Best Way to Learn
With our online classroom you can take as long as you need to master each section. Watch the course as many times as you like, your access never expires. Plus, we're able to zoom in on our work as we go so you can see where we put our hands, how we hold the markers, and when we pause or shift for each letter. This is the best way to learn because it's so flexible, you can fit this in your life.
Let's talk about what we love about lettering. This has become our outlet for creativity, an escape from day-to-day tasks to a place where we can focus on meaningful words and thoughts. This is a hobby you can take with you whereever you go, it's easy to share, and it adds beauty to the world around you. Here are just a few ideas on how to add lettering to your life.
Easy to Start
We'll teach you step-by-step, no previous experience (or good handwriting) necessary. You control the pace, so watch a section as many times as you need to get comfortable with each skill.
No Expensive Materials
Faux calligraphy is taught using markers, not expensive brush pens. This has several advantages - Markers are typically easier to find and cost much much less than brush pens, and they are easier to use! With our faux calligraphy methodology you'll be able to start faster.
We've literally had hundreds of people complete this course. Our in-person experience is critical because we know what questions people would ask and so we've been able to work those into the material.
