Upcoming Workshops

The Lettering Journey is on pause until further notice. Please see the homepage for current online and virtual offerings.
Now is a great time to hone your lettering skills at your own pace!

Lettering Walking Tours

After my in-person workshops, I offer a walking lettering tours in heart centre of each city I visit. Bring your sketchbook, pencil/pens, and a camera. We'll have an adventure while learning the tradecraft of lettering.

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."

"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
