Signwriting a Garden Inspired Quote - Style 1

What you'll learn

A class to teach basic letting in a calligraphy style, often used in signwriting, with the aim to use this skill to decorate any items with paint pens. Join Clair as she teaches you the basics to letter the quote 'To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow' by Audrey Hepburn. Clair will show you how to place your quote sensibly, where the keywords are, and where to emphasize them. The class will then move on to teach you how to turn this lettering into faux calligraphy - a much bolder version of the original text. Essentially you get two for one and will learn two styles of calligraphy in this class.
