What do I need to take this course?
The course is structured entirely of pre-recorded videos, section notes, and guided worksheets so that you can learn at your own pace. Meredith starts with the fundamentals of hand-lettering and how it differs from traditional calligraphy.
Hand-lettering is much more accessible and modern, since you don’t need a fancy nib or inkwell to create it. All you need is a pen and paper to get started. Meredith teaches how to create a “faux calligraphy” look by manually thickening and shaping the down strokes of your letters, so you can achieve a calligraphy look like this with any writing instrument you prefer—pen, pencil, marker, chalk, etc.
The course includes guided video tutorials where Meredith teaches you her professional tips and tricks for forming each letter. And the course comes packed with practice worksheets that show you how to letter common words like “welcome” and “thank you,” along with tons of others. In each video tutorial, Meredith shows you how to connect your lines and create your words—including her specific steps for creating different styles with your lettering. The course also includes practice sheets to achieve four distinct lettering styles before you start branching out on your own:
While the course focuses on the fundamentals of learning how to letter with just a pen and paper, Meredith also shares her professional tricks for lettering on other common surfaces, like envelopes, acrylic, and chalkboards. Here’s an outline of the course structure:
