That Time I Learned Hand Lettering

Hello, reader! When was the last time you learned something new? I recently undertook learning how to write in modern calligraphy, also known as hand or brush lettering. I had several friends who have been practicing for years and whose work I envied. I once won a hand writing award (cough, in third grade), and I thought, ‘hey, I could do that too!’


A few weeks later, I stumbled upon The Happy Ever Crafter’s online modern calligraphy class. It’s free to sign up and take part in the class, you only need to purchase the monthly workbooks which are under $10 on the 1st day she posts them. I would highly recommend this class if you want to learn modern calligraphy. Becca broke every letter down to the basic strokes that it is composed of.

The 1st month is learning basic strokes, the second is lowercase and the third is upper case. The remaining 3 months are learning different techniques of connecting letters and writing words. It’s mostly a self taught class, with Becca posting some tutorial videos for further guidance. The main point of the class is to post in the Facebook group or on Instagram and connect with the lettering community.

Overall, if you’re looking to start a new hobby, have a side hustle, or just have nicer writing, I would definitely recommend this class. If you do join Becca’s class, give my Instagram account, @scribbles_by_sara a follow, so I can see your work and progress!
