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.

When I started hand lettering 3 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!
That's why I created this workshop. You don't need to spend hours and months researching all the different aspects of hand lettering to finally get good at it. I have been teaching in-person workshops and I see how my students improve in just the couple of hours that I'm with them. That's what I want for you.

"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."

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 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)

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.

Hey! I'm Sarah, a hand lettering artist and ice cream connoisseur. I started hand lettering in 2016 during a difficult time and it became a form of therapy. It brought so much joy back into my life. I started Ensign Insights as a way to share that joy with others. Hand lettering has given me confidence in many aspects of my life and I'm passionate about helping others feel that confidence in their own lettering and life.

I love making new friends so I'm glad you're here!
