Love Your Lettering: A Little Book of Type with Kelly Kilmer


Love Your Lettering: A Little Book of Type is really three workshops in one! Kelly Kilmer will show you how to make stunning backgrounds for your pages with a variety of layering techniques, how to then bind your pages into a book with a classic pamphlet stitch, and how to confidently transform your own humble handwriting and printing into impressive, artistic lettering. HOW much fun is that?!

For all levels.

Workshops are limited to 14 participants.

One of the things I hear repeatedly in my classes is how many people hate their own handwriting. At one time, I was one of those people. After many years of being told by teachers and friends that my handwriting was atrocious, I'm now being complimented on my writing. I've never taken a calligraphy class. It all comes from experimenting in my journal. 

I'll teach you everything I know so that you'll walk out of this workshop loving your handwriting. You'll also walk out with a little book full of layers of color and text created by YOU, and you'll have the option of making more than one book...I'll show you a few variations to choose from! 

We will be getting messy with acrylics in this class, so please dress accordingly.

My workshops are always process-based learning while creating a unique product. I am well known for not traveling light and bring a large variety of supplies including (but not limited to) collage material, rubber stamps stencils, pens, markers, tape and more.

Students are asked to bring:

  • scissors
  • bone folder
  • cork-backed metal ruler
  • roll of waxed paper
  • roll of paper towels
  • permanent black inkpad
  • 1" brush to paint (I like chip or bristle brushes)
  • small container to hold water
