A lot of you have asked me what the best way is to start lettering - and I really think there's no better way than doing a course! Following is a list of courses I have personally taken and/or highly recommend.

You’ve seen it on Instagram, all through stores and everywhere you turn. Hand lettering is all over and now it is your turn to join the revolution!
