Handlettering, the art of beautiful letters, is not witchcraft, but can conjure up truly magical works of art. Artistic knowledge or a beautiful handwriting are completely irrelevant, only the joy of creating is a prerequisite.
With this workshop we want to introduce you to the art of beautiful letters. Together with us, you will create your own work of art and a self-made keychain as a souvenir of MagicCon 6.
After a short introduction about what handlettering, brushlettering, calligraphy and co. actually are, and which basic principles all styles follow, we will start directly with your own nerdy handletterings.
Using shrink wrap and a handlettered saying (e.g. MagicCon 6, “Let your geek flag fly”, “May the force be with me”, “Alohomora” or “Speak friend and enter – Mellon”), we’ll create a keychain that you can take home with you, and together we’ll paint a handlettering on paper that can serve as a greeting card, door sign or wall mural, for example.
If you like, you can also bring fineliners, colored pencils or other painting materials; registered workshop participants will receive pencils, erasers, paper, a brush pen and the materials for a keychain.
