The Lettering Workbook

 Graphic designer with a talent in brush lettering, watercolor lettering, doodling and other things artsy

About Us

She was that girl in school - who doodled all over her textbooks.

Little did she know that her passion for artistic expression would lead to a career in graphic design. The Lettering Workbook began with the intent to create an actual brush lettering workbook! It then branched out into an Instagram page that aims to inspire others to have fun and learn through creative experimentation. You don't have to be perfect to try!

A graphic designer by day, KY conducts workshops for corporates, adults and kids, in her spare time.

Beyond lettering, she is passionate about imparting real working-life skills to children and youth, equipping them with knowledge in art and design which may help them develop their future career path. There are no silly dreams, accidental talents, she believes that everyone is destined for greatness!

Instructor was friendly and nice but I did not quite enjoy the lesson as I was the only adult around. Perhaps there could be a clearer notice that this is to be a kids' class instead of writing adults are welcome to join too...

I signed up for 2 courses & I indicated the promo code "LOVETLW" but was not given the discount of &10/- for the promo code. Instructor is patient & knowledgeable but the noisy environment is not conducive for learning.

Enjoyed myself during this course, the instructor was clear in her explanations. However, 2 things marred the experience:
1. When I signed up for the course (for 2 pax), it was advertised that Faber-Castell Calligraphy Brush Markers (12colours) would be given, but we did not receive any - only a single black brush pen!! The Lettering Workbook responded that it was out of stock. Can you please look into this?
2. It was held in a central atrium which was extremely noisy so it was difficult to hear the instructor.

Suffice to say, if the first point is not addressed, I won't be attending another class by the instructor nor will I be recommending this instructor.

Enjoyed myself in the class while picking up the basics for watercolour brush lettering. Ky is a friendly lady who is clear in the explanation and very encouraging, and she generous on both tips and materials (the last Calligraphy workshop I attended limited to 3 pieces per person). Definitely would recommend her to whoever interested in picking up a new hobby.

The Course was great. The size of the class is also decent to ensure that everyone got KY's help to improvise.
As it was an event held at the main atrium, instead of just demonstrating the strokes at the front of the class. KY went to each desk to further explain and share with us tips to perfecting the strokes.
Would recommend and attend her workshop again.

The class size was just nice and the instructor facilitated the session very well. Though it's her first public appearance, she managed it well and was able to learn helpful tips on the basic strokes in the lettering. I wished the session can be extended to 2 hours so that more flaws can be sharpened. Definitely will come again! I wished I had more time to attend her other classes.

Great instructor who provides clear instruction and provides 1-to-1 guidance as much as possible. It's a pity the venue was not conducive for the class. Could barely hear the instructor clearly. The group size could be smaller too. Considering the 1.5 hours is already quite short, a smaller group size would allow for more 1-to-1 interaction.

The instructor was able to guide each participant and respond to individual queries with tips and tricks for the workshop. The venue and noise level was the drawback of the workshop.

Would give the workshops 5 stars were it not for the venue which drowned out the instructor's voice at times. However, I enjoyed myself at both the Brush Lettering and Floral Wreath Painting workshops because the instructor was not only clear, she was also very encouraging, giving very helpful feedback which was specific to the participants' way of lettering or painting. Additionally, she was generous in sharing resources like floral vectors, plus various tips, techniques and tricks. I would attend other classes by her if they relate to my interests.

The instructor is very friendly and easy to approach. She is so lovely in sharing her experience, tips with us besides of the basic skills for brush lettering. My Boyfriend and I were very enjoyed ourselves. it was worth to spend the weekend with the instructor. I will definitely to join her next class if it is relate to my interested and strongly recommend her for my friends as well. However, the only thing which very dissapointed us was the noisy environment. If the class could hold in a quiet place it will be better.

1. Instructor was friendly, humble and attending.
2. I enjoyed the lesson but had expected more skills to be taught within the 1.5 hours.
3. I had signed up for 2 sessions : 'Brush Lettering' & 'Watercolour Lettering', not realising that exactly the same skills were taught, except for the second one that uses watercolour. Perhaps the Instructor could have advised by putting a footnote to say that the same skills will be taught in both 'Brush Lettering' & 'Watercolour Lettering'. Otherwise, the participant would feel misled and 'pay double' learning exactly the same skills.
OR ... Perhaps Smarter.Me could have alerted the participant not to sign up for 2 almost similar courses.
4. Can I be compensated in any way? :))

The instructor is friendly and goes around the table to do demo. Just that the time is too short to pick more skills from her.

Really enjoyed the lesson! Instructor was really clear and helpful through the 1-1 teachings. I've learnt a lot from her given that i'm a beginner at this! It's a pity that the lesson was held in the open so it wasn't that conducive. Will definitely attend another class by the instructor and would recommend her!
