Let’s pick up where we left off on the last night of Hand Lettering—with Billy Ola Hutchinson's take on Copperplate/Spencerian.  Students will practice their strokes and bring them together to create upper and lower case letter forms.  The class will then experiment with metallics, opaque inks, and gouaches on colored paper.  

Pre-requisite: Hand Lettering

Materials to Bring: One bottle of black ink (Pelikan® 4001 Brilliant Black is preferred), mechanical pencil, ultra-fine point Sharpie®, C-Thru® B-85; 2" x 18" 8ths Graph Beveled Ruler in Inches, palette knife (slim enough to fit into your ink bottle), a metallic ink (Dr. Ph. Martin’s Iridescent Inks or Winsor & Newton are my favorites), a tube of gouache (if you wish), small containers to store your mixed gouache or white inks in, small No. 2 or 4 round brush for loading ink, pen holder, fine and/or extra fine nibs.

About the Instructor | Billy Ola Hutchinson

Billy's passion for lettering began in pre-school with the assistance of Mommy Billie.  Billy and Billie spent hours shaping letter forms day in and day out. Later in life, Little Billy parlayed that lettering passion into a calligraphic profession, creating a petit line of stationery, penning custom lettering for clients, designing a line of porcelain for San Francisco's luxury speciality store, Gump’s and of course as an instructor at SFCB—taking students through those first step Little Billy took with Big Billie.  Start your new journey with Little Billy at SFCB.

Past Student Reviews:

 “The instructor shares a lot of information. I think he makes everyone at ease.”

“I loved how Billy mixed instruction with culture. He was so inspiring to me. He did a great job of breaking down different lettering styles into steps so we really learned the structure of the letterforms and how each builds on each other. He was also really understanding when life got in the way and we didn't get to practice as much as we wanted to. I already miss my Tuesday Billy classes! Highly recommend!!!”

“It really inspired me to do more lettering. It took the fear and intimidation out of it and made it fun!!!

Billy is an awesome instructor and an even more awesome human!”

“Love him!!!”
