About this Event

Introduction to Brush Pen Copperplate Calligraphy Workshop

Join Marilyn, founder of Eterate Calligraphy for an enriching Introductory Workshop of Brush Pen Copperplate Calligraphy at Gather Cowork by Cathay Organisation

The beginner-friendly workshop will provide you with knowledge of calligraphy terminology and tools to get started on your calligraphy journey. You will get to understand techniques to use a brush pen through warm-up drills and practice strokes. After getting familiar and comfortable with the new medium, we will work through all 26 copperplate minuscule. At the end of the session, we will go through tracing of the alphabet set, supplies and questions.

All materials are included and are yours to take home for continued practice. No prior experience is required. We're excited to introduce you to this new, portable and convenient medium. The workshop will focus on copperplate minuscule forms and writing techniques. Feedback and personal guidance will be provided. I look forward to sharing this passion of mine with you!
