Lettering for Facilitators and Trainers
is designed with the facilitator or trainer in mind…
This 1-day, hands-on workshop is for those leading from the front of the room or would like to offering lettering lessons as a part of their trainings.

This course is often taught in conjunction with bikablo with Jill Greenbaum. If you are interested in an upcoming retreat offering, please fill out the survey here.

If you and your team would like a private workshop at your office, custom corporate workshops are available. Please email me to discuss.

Based on the book...

Feel free to email me directly if you have questions.

Where do you want to learn?

Thank you for your interest in having me offer a workshop in your region! I am currently offering surveys to learn where there is the most interest and what people want to learn. Please share this with your colleagues. You will be the first to know when the dates and locations are finalized.

Each survey is 3 short questions.

I understand that adding additional days and the cost of a workshop is a considerable investment when attending a conference. Email me if interested in attending a 2-day Level Up Your Lettering workshop 4 days prior to the start of the conference. The days between the workshop and conference may be used to attend a lettering tour or vacation/sightsee.


Level Up Your Lettering at The Grove!

I'm excited to announce that in addition to the line up of professional offerings at the Grove, I will be offering a customized version of the 2-day workshop, Level Up Your Lettering. I hope you will join me in San Francisco so that we may letter together!

Two dates to choose from in 2020:

June 25 & 26 - a great opportunity for locals
July 30 & 31
- a timely choice for those who are attending the IFVP conference.

Lettering Tours

While in Copenhagen for EuViz, I offered a walking lettering tour in heart centre. Now with each city I visit, I seek out lettering styles and invite you to join me. Bring your sketchbook, pencil/pens, and a camera. We'll have an adventure while lettering together throughout the city.

Free for workshop participants.

Friends, colleagues and/or family are invited to join at a $50 USD drop-in fee. We will scout out a place for lunch and snacks but purchasing will be your responsibility.

"There hasn’t been a class that improved the quality of my work as much as your lettering class. So I’m very grateful to you. It even betters my drawing skills because I learn how to master the markers."

Laura L.
Visual Practitioner

"Heather's Level Up Your Lettering workshop is the best blend of content, theory, and practical learning I've had in a very long time. I feel equipped to go back to my workplace and immediately apply many of my newly acquired skills.
Thank you, Heather!
And I highly recommend her new Lettering Journey book even if you, like me, need to pay with Canadian dollars which translate to a 35% extra cost. It's worth every penny!"

Beth W.

"Thank you for our fantastic [customized] lettering workshop. It transformed how I letter and I think of my lessons learned every time I step up to the wall."

Trent W.
Visual Practitioner

"This summer I was lucky enough to do a two-day lettering course with the brilliant Heather Leavitt Martinez. It was a really powerful two days for me. I learnt a lot more than just lettering—she's a great teacher (and very funny)—and I think my work went up a level, or maybe even two, as a result. And not just the lettering part, something about the way she teaches made me more conscious about all of my work."

Carol C.
Visual Practitioner

"Thank you for all your teaching and support this year. You’ve given me such a love of lettering and enjoyment of the process. I’ve been blown away by your talent as a creative and also as a very holistic teacher. Your attention to the body and soul as well as the marks on a page have helped me to get back in touch with my creative self."

Kate J.
Visual Practitioner
