What Past Students Are Saying...

“Every single time I talk to Doris about art, I walk away with some magical tidbit of knowledge that I can immediately apply to my own work. Her years of experience have led her to having so many tips and tricks up her sleeve, and she is so generous with sharing them. Doris is the kind of teacher who will make you a better artist– period.”

Becca - The Happy Ever Crafter

“I've been following Doris's artistic work for a while now and have always wanted to learn how to do some of the amazing projects that she has done, specifically where she created beautiful lettering on non-papered items. I enrolled in her Lettered Luggage workshop where Doris talked about the steps for the project (from start to finish) such as the basics of lettering, composition and layout (the most interesting part for me) and how to apply this to any project. I loved that I was able to ask questions and receive tips/suggestions from her directly! I'm looking forward to learning from her again for another project! ”

Thuong Le Zhang

“I have taken numerous private lessons with Doris where we explored lettering on different mediums including chalkboard, glass and wood. Doris is one of the most creative person that I have ever met. Her mindset of possible ideas for projects are simply amazing. I have learned the industry’s best tricks and pearls to work on different surfaces, everything from the best tools for drafting and the final products. I have also learned how to do engraving from Doris. She is patient and her attention to details help me to critique my work. I have developed a much better artistic approach with all my work.”

Janet H.

“I discovered Doris thru an in-person Intro to Calligraphy class and it was the perfect step-by-step hands-on teaching experience I received. All the tools were provided, instructions were easy to follow and it made me want to continue practising when I got home. Highly recommend a class with Love Lettering. ”

Wendy R.

“Didn't realize how much I follow Love Lettering with Doris Wai. I started my lettering journey with a live intro class that showed me the art of lettering and the thinking behind each letter. From there, I experienced how to letter on luggage and also following on youtube, I've been able to pick up tips and tricks on creating other beautiful pieces. I enjoy learning from Doris as she's patient and teaches the thought process as well as the tips to develop your skill to continue lettering on your own. Plus she shares where to get all the tools and which are the best to use for your projects.”

Vijanti R.

“Doris is well known in the calligraphy and lettering community as an artist who is able to turn any object or surface into a work of art.

She shares all of her tips and tricks in her course, The Lettering Lifestyle, and leaves no stone unturned, from the comprehensive workbook to the detailed videos demonstrating how to tackle common and uncommon surfaces like ceramic and textiles.

For the beginning lettering artist or for someone who is looking to apply their skills in an unexpected way, Doris shares her out-of-the-box ideas that will surely inspire you to create something fun and unique. You’ll learn so much about the right tools and the process of bringing ideas to life that it’s no surprise that you’ll go from 0 to 100 as a lettering artist.

I highly recommend learning from Doris on how to unlock your creative juices and really live that lettering lifestyle!”

Doris, the queen of lettering, has blessed the world with this amazing course that covers lettering on not only paper, but on chalkboard, wood, mirrors, glass and textiles, just to name a few. Not only does her kindness shine throughout the course, but her knowledge is unmatched. (I learned a few tips and tricks I know I'm already going to implement into my next client commission within the first 15 minutes of watching.) I also can't say enough about all of the handouts that are included - you basically get a whole-ass book FULL of information, exercises, and tips to go along with every module. This is such an asset! If you want to not only take your lettering to the next level, but also integrate it into your lifestyle, I can't recommend Doris' course more. Amazing 10/10
