Join us at Creative Colony, a coworking space in the World Building in Downtown Silver Spring for our September doodle session to letter all things school supplies, one of our favorite things in this world. 



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? Every month has a different location for September-December 2018. After the end of the year, we'll poll members to see if we should continue rotating in 2019 or find a new permanent home.

WHERE CAN I PARK? Parking is available in the parking lot off of Fenton Street & Silver Spring Avenue, or on the street. All parking is free in downtown Silver Spring after 7pm! Creative Colony is also accessible by Metro and bus.

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
