November Hand Lettering Doodle Session: GIVING BACK

  • Bump n Grind 1200 East West Highway Silver Spring, MD, 20910 United States (map)

For November we'll have two lettering activities for folks to be able to give back in honor of Thanksgiving! First, we'll be writing letters in partnership with The Letter Project, a 501c3 organization whose primary mission is to foster a community of women who build one another up by sending letters to girls around the world who are going through a hard time. Second, we'll be teaming up with our co-organizer, Christy Batta, and her mom to help decorate & donate a tree for the Kennedy Kreiger Festival of Trees fundraiser by decorating ornaments with hand lettering!


Bump n Grind is located at 1200 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910


WHAT SHOULD I BRING? Bring your favorite doodle supplies [paper + pens + paints + etc]. We will also have some paper on-hand as well as our PEN SWAP BOX for you to test out different style pens for your drawings.

WHAT IS THIS? The Unofficial Hand Lettering Society of Silver Spring is a free monthly gathering for hand lettering enthusiasts to letter in company. Every month has a theme to jog the creative juices, but we would never dare limit your creativity to the theme! Come make new friends, swap pen and paper secrets and meet other creatives in your community.

WHERE ARE THE MEETINGS? Currently we are rotating locations around DTSS each month. October’s meeting will be held at Denizen’s Brewery off of East West Highway.

WHERE CAN I PARK? Parking is available on the street and in various DTSS parking garages. The Kennett Street garage is the closest! Parking is free in downtown Silver Spring after 7pm.

WANT TO GIVE BACK? Support the society by getting more involved! Join our mailing list for updates. Follow @SSLetters on Twitter + Instagram, and don't forget to use #SSLETTERS to share your lettering even between meetings & brag about your skillz! We'll repost on our channels, too! You can also help keep our hand lettering community alive with a donation today! Funds go towards putting on our community projects and providing materials at meetings. The Unofficial Hand Lettering Society is a completely volunteer based organization because we love our community. (That means you!) <3
