Learn how to create your own beautiful chalkboard lettering!

Chalk lettering is a fun way to express your love for letterforms. Spice up your old grocery chalkboard or even for your event signage! Join me in exploring the basics of chalk lettering or simply to brush up your chalk art skills!

This class will guide you to gain confidence in creating your own chalkboard lettering. While a basic hand-lettering background will be helpful, there is no doubt that this is beginner-friendly (no chalkboard experience is required!) And, you get to have your own A3-sized chalkboard to bring home and practice on!

About the Instructor

A writer and aesthete at heart, Rachel has always been in love with the power of words. Circa 2016 saw the start of her calligraphy hobby, and since then a humble interest in the art of writing has grown into a budding full-time career - something she did not even dare to dream of in its inception. While she conducts workshops, does on-site calligraphy, takes on commissions, designs stationery for events, and even has the privilege of working with corporate clients, her favourite part of calligraphy is in the personal touch it lends to writing - something that can’t be replicated.
