Do you want to learn hand lettering but don't know where to start?

Maybe some of the following statements resonate with you:

-I don't have time to learn to hand letter.

-I want to go to an in-person workshop but don't live near one or they're always too expensive.

-I have a hard time with the very basics of lettering.

-I can't figure out how to get my lettering to look good.

-I feel overwhelmed to learn hand lettering and don't know where to start.


When I started hand lettering 4 years ago, it took me almost a year to learn certain basic tricks that could have improved my lettering so quickly if I had learned them sooner! I spent hours researching different lettering techniques and felt very overwhelmed. I didn't know how I would learn it all. I didn't even know how I would know if I had learned it all. I also didn't have the money to be able to go to a class to learn from an expert. Would my lettering ever be good enough?

What if I told you that you don't need to spend hours and months researching all the different aspects of hand lettering to finally get good at it? You don't even have to spend a lot of money. Hand lettering doesn't have to be overwhelming. You can learn all you need to know in one sitting which will give you the foundation so you don't question if you're practicing the right things.

I want to help you by breaking down exactly what you need to know and exactly what you need to practice to learn and improve your lettering.



Let me introduce you to the Hand Lettering for Beginners online course.


Hand Lettering for Beginners is an online course that guides you through exactly what you need to know as a beginner. It includes everything that I teach at in-person workshops. You will be able to stop wondering if you are learning and practicing the right things.

Because it's an online course, you can start learning on your own time in the comfort of your own home. You don't need to spend a lot of time or money to learn everything you need to jump-start your hand lettering.

You get video instruction with demos of exactly what my hand looks like while lettering. It also includes a hand lettering workbook with all of the basics as well as practice worksheets to build muscle memory.

This self-led course is for you if:

  • You are a beginner in hand lettering
  • You want to learn to letter but you're not sure how to start
  • You only have a short amount of time to learn
  • You don't want to spend a lot of money to learn.
  • You are excited to practice to improve your lettering
  • You want to gain confidence in lettering and life
  • You want to go to an in-person workshop but don't live near one

This self-led course is NOT for you if:

  • You don't want to practice
  • You want to spend hours and months researching
  • You are an intermediate hand letter artist
  • You don't want to branch out and learn something new
  • You don't want to letter with a brush pen (this is not a class for a pointed pen)

"Sarah is very gracious and engaging and the practice sheets are great. A fantastic introduction to lettering! Sarah is a pleasure as an instructor and the materials she provides are wonderful and helpful."

Here's exactly what you'll get in the Hand Lettering for Beginners course:


+ 10 in-depth lessons with video demos to show you exactly how it works.

+ A 30-page workbook with additional instruction and practice worksheets to trace as much as you want to build muscle memory.​​​​​​​

My goal is that at the end of the course, you will:


+ Feel confident in your ability to learn hand lettering, no matter what your handwriting looks like.

+ Understand basic definitions that can be confusing and hold you back in your lettering.

+ Feel comfortable with what supplies you'll need and learn how to letter with any pen.

+ Become friends with brush pens so they work with you instead of against you.

+ Know the basic rules and details of lettering that will build your foundation.

+ Feel motivated in knowing what to practice moving forward.





Do any of these statements sound familiar?


-I don't have time to learn to hand letter.
This class is only about an hour of video instruction with a 30-page workbook you can download and print over and over again for continued practice. If you took this class in one sitting, plan for about two hours to include practice time. Or if you don't have two hours, you could spend 15 minutes a day for the next week or two. Imagine how it would feel that only after two hours (or two weeks), you know everything you need about basic hand lettering.

-I want to go to an in-person workshop but don't live near one or they're always too expensive.
This workshop is open to anyone in the world no matter where you live. You get even more instruction than what I give in my in-person workshops. The only thing that's missing is the pens I give and the candy. However, because this online workshop is even more affordable, you can still get some pens and candy for yourself. Don't know what pens to get? I tell you the most basic and affordable ones to get.

-I have a hard time with the very basics of lettering.
 Great! I explain the basics in-depth but in a simplified way so you can understand. Over the time that I've spent with students in workshops, I've started noticing all of the most common struggles and questions I'm asked. I answer all of them in the workshop.

-I can't figure out how to get my lettering to look good.
Sometimes the best thing we can do when we feel like this is to learn from someone who might have a new perspective to shed light on things we're struggling with. This workshop is setting you up for the future since it does take time to practice. Your lettering might be improved when you implement some of these basic tricks, and then it's just about practice.
