You see them all over these days: botanically inspired posters or postcards with funny/moving/touching quotes. They instantly brighten your interior and give your room more meaning.

Do you also love this hip trend and do you like handlettering, elegantly shaped letters, flower, plants and all kinds of botanical motives? If so, this workshop is going to be your cup of tea!

During this workshop, you'll learn the fine art of handlettering and how to combine it with botanical drawings. We'll go over a lot of tips and tricks, and based on the many examples I have available, you'll be able to finetune your technique. You will handletter a word, a quote or the alphabet in one of the base fonts and add a variety of botanical elements to it, in order to get to a beatiful and balanced whole.

If you've participated in the course ‘Start to Handlettering’, you'll be able to focus on the botanical aspect of this workshop. But beginners will be able to enjoy this workshop just as well. No drawing experience is required: everyone can participate on their own level.
