Friends, one of the downsides to the situation we find ourselves in right now is that so many plans are getting canceled and we aren’t able to do some of our favorite things. For me, that includes teaching in-person hand lettering workshops. However, one of the silver linings is that we all find ourselves with time on our hands (and in our homes) to learn new things. So, I decided to create a half-hour video version of the instruction I usually provide in my beginner hand lettering workshop as a free gift for you all. It’s embedded below, or you can click here to watch it on YouTube. It will walk you through Faux Calligraphy, Basic Brush Technique, and Caps Lock Print as well as three simple embellishments. Then, you’ll be ready to tackle a project on your own!
Feel free to pause the video at any point to catch up or look at the on-screen examples. It’s easy to move through at your own pace in the comfort of home! All you need is a pencil and a bullet-tip marker to get started…bonus points if you can get your hands on a brush pen. Check it out, and I really hope you enjoy learning and lettering along with me. I’d love to hear your feedback! Feel free to leave your comments and questions in the Amy Latta and Friends Facebook group.
Now, let’s get lettering! Here’s my at-home lettering workshop, just for you!
If you enjoy it, share it with a friend so they can start a relaxing new hobby too!

[…] I used a black permanent marker and the Faux Calligraphy technique to write the words, “God bless America, land that I love.” Lightly sketching the words in pencil first will ensure that they’re centered and that everything fits. After you’ve traced the words and the marker is dry, you can easily erase any remaining pencil marks. For a super-simple tutorial on how to turn your writing into Faux Calligraphy, CLICK HERE!
