Lettering Workshop

Location: SMUG (Islington, London)
Time: 1pm - 4pm

No new dates planned at the moment. If you'd like to know when a new date is added, leave your name on this list.



Learn the basics of hand lettering in this 3 hour workshop. You'll start by practicing different letter styles and learning about hierarchy and composition. Then you'll work on your own project, by sketching and finishing a phrase of your own choice on a card. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have the knowledge and tools to create your own beautiful lettering pieces.

All materials are included, and you’ll get to take home a set of lettering tools and a guide with tips and references. Don't forget to pick a short phrase (2 to 5 words) to visualise.

This workshop is suitable for both beginners and those with some knowledge of lettering. With a maximum of 6 people attending, there’ll be plenty of time for one-to-one help.





Animated GIF Workshop

Location: SMUG (Islington, London)
Time: 1pm - 4pm

No new dates planned at the moment. If you'd like to know when a new date is added, leave your name on this list.



In this 3 hour workshop you'll make your own animated GIF. After a little introduction and a look at some examples, you'll start brainstorming and sketching your own idea, drawing the frames by hand and using Photoshop to create the GIF, ready to share on your website/social media.

In order to do this workshop you’ll have to bring with you:
- A fully charged laptop with Photoshop installed and ready to work on (minimum CS5, preferably Creative Cloud. You can download a trial)
- A charger for your laptop
- To get the most out of this workshop, it’s worth doing some brainstorming at home and bring any ideas and sketches with you

A selection of drawing materials and paper will be provided for use during the workshop (but feel free to bring your favourite pencils/pens with you). You'll also receive a GIF guide with detailed steps, tips and references.

This workshop is suitable for beginners - but a very basic understanding of Photoshop is required. With a maximum of 5 people attending, there’ll be plenty of time for one to one help. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
