  • Just a healthy-to-rabid interest in modern calligraphy and lettering!


How do you infuse modern calligraphy and lettering on ANY material from A (agate) to Z (zucchini)? Most courses teach you how to do calligraphy using paper. This is the ONLY course in Udemy that teaches you a simple 3-step framework to follow using a structured approach, so that you have the confidence in selecting the right combination of materials, tools and supplies for any material.

This class is most useful for those who already have some background knowledge in modern calligraphy and lettering, and is more focused on using the right supplies and calligraphy styles for different materials, than on how to create calligraphy itself.

Have you been doing calligraphy on paper for a while, and itching to progress to using other materials? Have you spent ages scouring the Internet for the right tools and supplies to use for specific types of mediums and just wish that all the information can be found in one place you can turn to? If you answered YES to any one of the questions above, then this FREE course is for you!

This is an introductory, yet comprehensive, step-by-step course to learn the Prep-Play-Display framework which can skyrocket your creativity in infusing your modern calligraphy and lettering on a variety of mediums.
