Event description

Description

Always wanted to learn calligraphy? Now is your chance to start with this beautiful art!!

This will be an intensive learning opportunity for those who crave to get a strong foundation in Copperplates. Nina Tran will teach a full 6.5 HOUR workshop (10am to 6pm with a 90 minute lunch break) thoroughly covering all the basic strokes of this style--starting with grasping the various strokes, moving on to focus on the lowercase letters of the alphabet. Also reviewed will be tips on the proper papers, inks, and nibs. On Sunday this workshop will continue with learning how to make capital letters. That way, you will have a solid base for calligraphy.

This workshop is open to both beginners and advanced calligraphers alike.

Nina Tran

It all started in December 2014, when Nina picked up a pointed pen for the first time. Her intention was to learn modern calligraphy and help a friend with her wedding invitations. After a very frustrating first two months, she almost gave up… And then, she discovered Copperplate calligraphy on Instagram. It was love at first sight. She fell in love with the elegant style, the rules, the consistency, and the flourishes – what’s not to love, really! Almost 500 Instagram posts and 14k followers later (clicke here for her Instagram account) she has an amazing ability to breakdown the steps into manageable bits. She imparts a great enthusiasm to share her learning path with her audience. She is in love with learning Copperplate. She loves teaching it even more.

Copperplate

Developed by English handwriting masters in the 18th century, Copperplate calligraphy is synonomous with fluidity and beauty. It is the most popular style for social correspondence, invitations, and other communications requiring an elegant hand. It requires a dedication and diligence to master. And if you do so, it brings great reward and joy!
