I’m holding a week-long lettering retreat in France hosted by UpTrek in the tranquil countryside of southern France, surrounded by the picturesque Occitanie region, April 29 – May 4, 2024.

It’s a dream come true for me—instructing a handful of creative people IRL, then chatting in the afternoon for an Ask the Agent Anything circle, in an incredibly picturesque setting featuring gourmet meals and dazzling day trips to medieval towns, vintage markets, and a vineyard.

This adventure originally sold out in one day but two spots opened up recently, so hurry—they will probably sell immediately!

Make sure to sign up for the wait list if you don’t grab one of these two spots.

This is going to an amazing trip. I get to hang out and teach a small group of artists my major passion: lettering.

Plus, let me advise you on your career! Read more here.

Each participant will receive an inspiring 25-card lettering deck.
Everyone is capable of enjoying and mastering lettering. If you can hold a pencil then I can teach you any number of techniques, tools and embellishments to find enjoyment in letter-making. Lettering is a beautiful way to enhance your illustration work and to increase income, but even if you’re not an illustrator, it’s a source of personal pleasure such as embellishing your journal entries or as a meditation technique.

Lettering has always been a huge part of my creative career, first as an illustrator, then author, then content creator. But mostly, I love the calming nature of letter-forming, the endless sources of font vintage inspiration, and the variety of materials one can use to create letterforms.

You’ll try out lettering techniques, relax in the garden and chat with new friends over wine, and explore charming villages, explore the beautiful surroundings, take day trips to nearby towns and landmarks, and make new friends.
