Beginner friendly creative workshop combining hand lettering with repurposing, reusing and upcycling.

Lettering & Upcycling happens every 3rd Monday of the month at The Remakery, Brixton, with alternating themes: Lettering Collage, and Hand Lettered Jars and Labels. Check my experiences for more dates and themes.

Detailed description:

Learn hand lettering techniques and apply them to upcycling projects. Beginners welcome :)

A unique hand lettering workshop with a focus on sustainability. Learn hand lettering techniques and use them to jazz up your home decor, create personalised gifts, and make art from repurposed materials. No previous art experience necessary.

In the first part of the workshop we will practice lettering techniques with pencil on paper, before moving onto layout and composition and working on our individual projects.

Monthly workshop recurring on the third Monday of the month, with alternating themes. This month's theme is hand lettered jars and labels!

You will practice a clean lettering style and simple flourishes, and learn tips for hand lettering on glass jars and making your own labels. Label your storage, personalise a container for a homemade gift, or repurpose a jar to use as a candle holder…the possibilities are endless!

Art materials and some glass containers will be provided; you are welcome to bring your own containers to decorate, or use what is available.

Hand Lettered Jars & Labels is one of the themes of  Lettering & Upcycling, a monthly workshop recurring on the third Monday of the month, with alternating themes. Check my profile for dates and more info about the other themes.

About the host

Hello! I'm Val, London based lettering artist and graphic designer. Since I started practicing hand lettering in 2014, I have turned this passion into a business, painted personal commissions, sold my work at art markets, worked with brands and painted large scale pieces such as chalkboards and shop windows. I now teach hand lettering workshops where I share my tips and techniques for drawing type and turning it into art.
