Learn the art of Hand Lettering with Emma Fretz of Emma Fretz Designs in Waterloo!  In this 2 hour workshop, you'll explore and practice the tools and proper techniques of hand lettering & faux calligraphy.  We'll go over everything from basic pen strokes to constructing and connecting letters, styling and composition, so you can walk away with everything you need for developing your skill and style!


Each student will receive an instructional guide book with alphabet exemplars and styling tips exclusive for workshop students. This is a really fun, no-pressure workshop for anyone interested in learning a new skill, honing their practice, picking up a fun hobby, artist looking to try a new technique/medium, the DIY bride or just something fun to do with friends.


Words from Emma:

Emma has taught hundreds of diverse students from Waterloo Region and beyond since offering her first lettering workshop in May 2017. EFD students are just regular people, so whatever your skill level, experience, or perceived "artsy-ness", this workshop is perfect for you!

Bring a friend or come alone, you will be sure to make friends quickly. We like to focus on the process instead of just the final product, so there is lots of collaboration and chatting with your neighbours happening during workshops.
