We are introducing a new series of workshops - CraftJam Academy. These workshops will consist of 3 to 4 sessions and are taught by experts in their field who will make sure you thoroughly learn a new skill or deepen the knowledge you already have. With the launch of CraftJam Academy, we are starting off with the Lettering Workshop series. Lettering can be simply defined as “the art of drawing letters” - it is a specific combination of letterforms crafted for a single use, often hand-drawn, with pens, graphite or brushes. In 3 sessions designer Jessie Katz will introduce you to the basic techniques of lettering and guide you in creating a unique hand-drawn wall-art piece. You will finish the workshop with a tutorial on digitizing your designs. Workshop dates: Batch: 2/14, 2/21, 2/28 Batch: 3/8, 3/15, 3/22 Batch: 3/20, 3/27, 4/3 Batch: 4/6, 4/13, 4/20 Batch: 5/2, 5/9, 5/16 Choose your batch according to the start day!
