WHO HASN’T LOOKED at a beautiful hand-lettered blackboard and asked themselves ” Gosh, how I’d love to have something like this greeting my customers”

Look no further

After a long hiatus due to COVID-restrictions
Reykjavik Lettering returns with another exciting handlettering workshop – this time devoted to the art of chalkboard lettering.

What is Chalkboard-lettering?

Chalkboard lettering is the art of visually articulating and composing a message for a blackboard, using different types of fonts, layouts, colors, textures and illustrations.

The field has emerged with many prominent handlettering artists in recent years, among others Dana Tanamachi, Ian Barnard, Annica Lydenberg and Tim Bontan (just to name few – we are a league of hundreds, if not thousands!)

In this 3-day workshop ( 3 x 3 hours group sessions) you will be introduced to the wonderworld of handlettering. We‘ll cover everything from letter-drawing anatomy to getting familiar with all the best tools of the trade.

We‘ll explore how to build your own layouts, so you can expand your creativity on everything ranging from a blackboard to wine bottles, shoes, garments and…well, in fact everything you want to enrich with your creative spirit.

What's included in the course fee?

Each participant receives:

  • 3 x 3 hour instructional group sessions, with 8 participants max – evenly distributed between whiteboard teaching, and practical get-your-creativity-flowing excercises.
  • 1 x 4 pen pack of quality chalk-pen markers for you to use in the workshop and own after it.
  • 1 x instructional / reference / inspirational folder with 20 different layouts and complete fonts that you can use for your future projects.
  • Handy sketch book to keep your ideas and sketches in.


Each participant will work on a 50x70cm blackboard for the duration of the workshop.
