Intro to Modern Brush Lettering

  • All Hands Workshops 514a Front Street Santa Cruz, CA, 95060 United States (map)

Try your hand at a cool, modern style of brush lettering with graphic designer Meghann Miniello.

Modern brush lettering is everywhere these days - book covers, greeting cards, party invitations, social media graphics, clothing, wall art, the list goes on. Develop this versatile skill set and enter a world of possibilities to put your handmade mark on all the things.

In this workshop, we will:

  • learn to hold and write with brush pens

  • learn the proper way to form basic strokes and letters

  • “break” the rules!

  • begin to develop your own distinct, personal style of lettering

The following supplies are included:

  • two different sized brush pens

  • practice worksheets made by Meghann

  • a printable PDF to help you continue practicing on your own


Meghann Miniello

Meg is a maker and mama with an addiction to paper and pixels. Her design studio, Meghann Miniello Creative, has a California-cool (or so is her goal), relaxed vibe, and specializes in custom hand-lettering for invitation design, branding, prints, apparel and art fabrication. The creative process is what excites her and is just as important as the end product. When she’s not working, you can find her by the beach, re-arranging her house, DIYing, making too many Insta-stories of her two babes, Frankie and River (and their pups!), and chilling with her firefighter husband.
