At The Chalk Lettering Workshop

Last January, I won in a raffle.  And the prize …. a free seat to my craft idol Alessandra Lanot’s Chalk Lettering Workshop!!!  Here are some pictures from the event.

I don’t really like using chalk.  But, I love lettering so much that I was willing to work with it.IMG_0216 IMG_0217 IMG_0220 IMG_0221

Before working on the board, we made a thumbnail version of our sketch first. We were asked to use one of our goals this year.  Don’t mind what I wrote.  I’m not going to Beijing or Bangkok.

Some tips I learned: Sharpen your chalk.  Use dry chalk when making your preliminary sketch.  Use wet chalk for the final output.
