This class meets on Saturday/Sunday: May 20 & 21, 2017.
10:00 am to 4:00 pm
In this intensive weekend calligraphy workshop, we will examine and practice letterforms in Copperplate, a pointed-pen script hand that was developed in 16th century England. We will work with an oblique pen holder, pointed pen nib, ink, practice pads with grid and slant lines and creating our own guidelines. Our main focus will be on practicing varying amounts of pressure to apply to our pens to produce thick (shaded) and thin (hairline) strokes, letter slant and letter form. We will begin our practice with minuscule and later majuscule letters, which will be grouped according to similar letterforms. Feel free to bring in your favorite quote and/or project ideas for practice and discussion.
