Brush Lettering Session with Martina Johanna

We are offering an exclusive Lettering Workshop for our Ruby Works Members at our Ruby Hans Workspaces Hamburg, hosted by lettering expert Martina Johanna in cooperation with Nadja Dünnwald Events.

23 March 2018 | 4-7 pm | Ruby Hans Workspaces Hamburg

Instagram feed, interior blogs or Pinterest walls – artsy Hand Letterings are all over the internet at the moment. Calligraphy seems to be the new trend-hobby – not only for DIY fans. This art form is not just a simple way to let your creativity run free without buying a bunch of professional tools, it also has a very relaxing and meditative effect, which makes it the perfect after-work program.

Martina Johanna discovered her passion for hand lettering in 2014 while living in Amsterdam. Since then, she is fascinated by calligraphy and the combination of different typos and styles. She is an offical brand ambassador of Faber Castell and collaborated for the book “Handlettering with love” by creative publisher emf. In this 3 hour workshop, she will teach you the basics of lettering with a brushpen. These pens allow you to create beautiful calligraphy effects very easily.

Martina shows you how paint the letters A-Z in small and capital letters and how to connect these letters to words. Additionally, you will learn how to decorate your letterings with small ornaments and how to arrange the letterings in your art piece to create a harmonic composition.

You can keep all materials, such as brushpens, rubbers and the lettering guide for more practice at home.

This brush lettering workshop is free for all Ruby Works Members, subject to availability. We’re also giving away 2 free seats for non-members – just comment on this blog post why you would like to join this event by 19 March. Good luck!
