About the Workshop

Join me to discover the art of hand lettering, while enjoying samples of wine along the way! In this introductory workshop, you'll learn about my process of hand lettering from start to finish and will have the opportunity to create your own piece to take home. No prior lettering experience is required - this class is for beginners and is perfect if you’ve been curious about hand lettering but aren't sure where to begin!

I love to pull inspiration from packaging to use within my lettering work - wine and spirits labels in particular can have such beautiful and intricate designs! In this hands-on workshop, I'll be selecting three bottles of wine from The Port with labels that inspire me and will hopefully help inspire your lettering practice, too. Attendees will get a sample of each wine to enjoy throughout the class.

Space is limited to ensure there is time for personal instruction, so make sure to register in advance! Your ticket includes admission to the 2.5 hour workshop, a lettering starter kit, and three wine samples (1.5 oz of each).

Please note: Attendees must be 19+. If you are attending with a friend(s) but purchasing your tickets separately, please email me at kdpletters@gmail.com so I can ensure to seat you together :)

Lettering Starter Kit Included!

A starter kit is included in the cost of the workshop, which consists of a sketchbook, lettering practice sheets, Bristol paper for your final piece, and a collection of a few of my go-to lettering tools (pencil, eraser and pen).

Required Materials

All required materials for this workshop will be provided. If you have some of your own tools at home that you'd like to bring to the workshop, please feel free to!

About the host: KDP Letters

Hi! I’m Kristen, and I’m a hand letterer and graphic designer in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I started hand lettering in the summer of 2015 and since then, it’s become a passion that I now practice daily. I have a background rooted in graphic design and marketing, and have spent the past 10 years as a freelance designer for various clients in addition to my current role as a Marketing Manager.

I spend most of my time being sarcastic and rolling my eyes, and waiting to hear or dream up the next quote that inspires me to open my sketchbook. You can find some of my work at Inkwell Boutique (including my Ignition Apron) and inside Kitchen Door Catering in Halifax. Mostly though, you can find me sharing all my new work regularly on my Instagram, under @kdpletters.
