Trying out a new hobby, you never know if it’s something you’ll love forever or just a phase, and you’ll get over it in a week.

So it makes sense to start testing the waters with some free resources, and I’m here to share some of them.

And be sure to scroll until the end for more resources and some freebies.

Brush Lettering Classes On YouTube

Technically, these are videos rather than actual classes. But you can learn all you need from them.

These creators put all the information you’ll need to master brush lettering, and you can always check my list of Free Brush Lettering Worksheets for some free printables to keep up with your practice.

Happy Ever Crafter

Becca creates amazing lettering pieces herself, but she’s also an amazing teacher.

Her videos made a big impact on my lettering journey because she is great at explaining the process and making even the boring, repetitive exercises look fun.

I think the video below is the best to get started, and from there, you can check pretty much all of her YouTube channel.

Loveleigh Loops

These ladies are wonderful calligraphy artists and share many materials to help you get started.

The video below is a good one to start with brush calligraphy, and they even offer a free practice worksheet.

They actually also have a wonderful set of YouTube videos about faux calligraphy.

Faux calligraphy is something you can do now while you’re still learning brush lettering. And here is the first lesson of the series.

There are probably many other artists out there, but these are the two I love and definitely recommend.

But enough of those, how about the free classes I was talking about?

Free Calligraphy Online Courses

The courses on this list are from my obsession of many years - Skillshare.

Skillshare is an online education platform with thousands of courses on any topic imaginable. From doodling and brush lettering to coding and photography - you can find classes on anything you can think of.

Is Skillshare actually free?

I can hear you thinking that, so let me clarify.

Technically, Skillshare is a subscription-based platform, so for a small fee a month (or a year), you get access to thousands of classes.

But I got here a sweet deal for you - if you use my link, you can get access to all the premium Skillshare classes FREE for a whole month.

That's enough time to take all of these classes and decide for yourself if brush lettering is something you love and want to invest in.

So let's dive in!

Brush Lettering Supplies

One small note I know people will be wondering. You don’t need to buy expensive brush pens to start.

Just buy one good one, and it will be enough to start working on your calligraphy.

Which one to buy? Here are a few of my favorites:

I want to mention also Archer and Olive Calliograph pens. They are pretty similar to Tombow Dual Brush pens, but some with two brush ends and have a different set of colors.

You can also get it 10% off if you use my code MASHA10.
