brush-lettering workshop at renovate

In June, we hosted Natalie Coulter of Mint and Maple Designs at our studio. She taught two workshops, titled "Brushlettering 101" and it was an absolute blast! Both workshops sold out, so if you're interested, you can sign up to attend in August. Click here to go to the Mint & Maple website and sign up. The next two classes will be Tuesday, August 25th from 6-8 pm and Wednesday August 26th from 12 pm to 2 pm. 

We've always wanted to learn to address envelopes beautifully! So hosting Mint and Maple was such a treat for us! Classes are limited to 12 students to ensure plenty of one-on-one instruction. Natalie teaches basic strokes and the alphabet, as well as how to mix colors for custom watercolor cards. 


Above, Emily listens as Natalie reviews basic brush strokes. Grab a friend and register for a class in August - we had so much fun in June! 

Another student, Amy, practices mixing colors for backdrops. Each student made a card as a take-away from the class. Students also take away a watercolor brush, pen, set of watercolors, practice guides, and samples of their work. 

Brynne, Lisa, and Amy enjoyed learning new skills with old friends. Below, Natalie models the strokes on a display board in the studio. 


It was awesome to be able to use our newly expanded studio space to host these fun workshops! We can't wait for Natalie (who is based in Austin) to come back to Renovate and host more classes.

Happy hand-lettering, everyone!
