Teaching has always been something I dreamed of doing ever since my passion for lettering escalated so much over the past year. I have always wanted to somehow give back to people by sharing what I know to others.
I’ve taught in alternative classes, organized a workshop with friends, and recently, I was more than humbled to hold a special lettering class for LeBunny Bleu, a worldwide shoe brand catering to stylish young girls.
The fun catch here is that you have to be in LeBunny Bleu shoes to be a part of the workshop (aside from reserving a slot). Everyone was wearing really cute shoes!
I started briefing the students about the super basic things they need to know about lettering. I honestly had no background (I was self-taught) so I made it easier for them by coming up with a concrete and informative lesson plan and guide to accompany them while they practice their work.
The students were really good for beginners, considering some of them just started to letter that day!
Ate Maria is the one doing lettering for store announcements, and I’m glad she also picked up some tips from the workshop! :-)
I always like to give a final project (so teacher of me to lol) and for this, we came up with various lettering styles with quotes involving shoes and fashion.

I owe so much to my bosses (who also manage Quirks!) for giving me opportunities like these. Thank you, Michelle & Zerline for trusting me to conduct this workshop for LeBunny Bleu! :)
Students with their lovely typography pieces!
It was sort of a mini meet-up as well ‘cause some of the students are readers of my blog! Always fun to get to interact with my readers. :-)
There might be a part two to this when I return from my trip but hopefully we’ll get to update you guys! Here’s to maximizing my *knowledge* while I still can, lol.
I’m having 2 workshops this September and hopefully a few more before the year ends, so I’ll let you guys in on that soon. :)
