Modern Handwriting Class
A twist on classic calligraphy, modern handwriting is a huge trend on Instagram, Pinterest and basically every corner of the internet. We see quotes written in modern handwriting everywhere, it's also used in campaigns for many companies and even as decoration in shop windows. We can't help it, it's gorgeous! And you can do it too.
Join us for a session of learning the skill of modern handwriting with teacher, Josselin Bijl from Amsterdam. Truly for beginners, Josselin will give you the right tools and skills to kickstart your journey to writing beautiful strokes and lettering even if you think that you have barely legible handwriting. With all these basics at your fingertips, you will then learn to write your name or a favourite quote to design your very own print!WHEN
WHAT'S INCLUDED 3 fun hours of learning a new skill and enjoying delicious food and drinks in our Bloesem studio. Open to beginners, the workshop will cover a demonstration of modern handwriting techniques by Josselin, sufficient time for you to practice strokes and lettering, plenty of feedback and one-on-one help from the teacher. You will receive a handwriting starter kit that you will use in class and is yours to take home together with your writing creations! It will be a great time of developing your own lettering style and mastering your brushstroke skills in a relaxed and creative atmosphere.
ABOUT JOSSELIN BIJL Josselin’s interest for handwriting is not something she learned for very long but through the years. She finished her study at the AMFI (Amsterdam Fashion Institute), where she learned Fashion Design, photography and illustration.
