THE WORKSHOP IS STILL ON! Grab your umbrellas!

A couple seats have opened-up due to the rain. Join us!

Saturday, August 26th, 2017 from 1:30 - 4:30 pm

South Congress Hotel, Austin, TX

Join us for a 3 hour afternoon lettering workshop on Aug. 26th. The event will cover: 

  • How to work with chalk and chalk markers

  • Chalkboard lettering techniques, styles, and flourishes

  • How to create eye-catching and dynamic layouts

  • Lauren’s top lettering tips & tricks to make your work look, as Lauren says, “classy as fuck.”

By the end of the workshop, you'll have the skills to create chalk signs, menu boards, and murals. We’d call this somewhere between a beginner and intermediate class. Basic knowledge of letterforms and some prior practice are required for this class, but you do not need to be an expert letterer! 

The price of the workshop also includes:

  • Small personal chalkboard, chalk, chalk markers, pencils, and paper (all yours to keep after the class) and refreshments

  • Unlimited compliments and positive affirmations from yours truly
