Creative Colour for All Occasions

Jan Pickett

1-Day Workshop

All Skill Levels Welcome

Lettering • Design


During this workshop, we will begin the journey of exploring colour in the pen, brush and background, using watercolour, pastels and coloured pencils. We will have fun decorating in, on and around a selection of letters, including lifting out and dropping in colour, pressure and release techniques and experimenting creatively with colour blending techniques.

These decorative opportunities can be applied to both formal and informal lettering.

Have fun and see your letters come alive!
