    This class is great for anyone who has always wanted to dabble with Brush lettering but doesn’t know where to start. Absolutely no experience is necessary as brush letters have a very lovely and imperfect quality.

    In this class, Maybelle will show you her approach to brush lettering with Sumi ink. The first half will focus on experimenting with the brush on paper, mark making, writing and the alphabet, then connecting it into words. The second half of the class will be set aside for creating your own Brush lettering on a Tote Bag from sketch to finished product. You will each go home with a unique bold, graphic tote bag that flaunts your style and makes a statement.

    Brush lettered tote bags make unique gifts, you’ll want to make one for yourself and more to create unique gifts for all your friends and loved ones. There will be more canvas bags on hand in case you are inspired to create more than one!

    You will get to take home:
    • Personalized and signed copy of the book “The Gift of Calligraphy”
    • Pointed Brush
    • Sumi Ink
    • Acrylic Ink
    • Rice paper
    • Blank Canvas Bags
      • Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls draws inspiration from botanical engravings, vintage alphabet specimens, and her numerous travels abroad. She has been known to journey to Paris in search of vintage calligraphy nibs. Her love of ephemera and faraway places inspired her first collaboration with Chronicle Books.

        With over 15 years of experience, Maybelle has been commissioned for bespoke wedding invitations, editorial features, and licensed products, exhibiting her elegant and playful signature style for a range of clients. Her work has appeared in Martha Stewart Weddings, Sunset Magazine, Victoria, and Better Homes and Gardens. Her work has also been featured on Design*Sponge, Besotted, and Oh Happy Day. Her calligraphy gift set “Belle Calligraphy Kit” published by Chronicle Books is based on the materials and supplies that she has designed for her workshops. “The Gift of Calligraphy-A Modern Approach to Hand Lettering with 25 Projects to Give & to Keep” is her second publication.
