Introduction to Copperplate Calligraphy
This workshop is going to take you back in time to the classic, elegant script that is known as Copperplate. It can be quite a daunting experience to try and learn a traditional calligraphy script, however in this workshop, you will be guided through hands-on instruction in everything that you need to know about forming letters in this beautiful style.
No prior experience with calligraphy or the dip pen is necessary, and having good handwriting is most certainly NOT a prerequisite!
Class size is limited to ensure that there is plenty of time for you to get the one-on-one feedback that you deserve on your progress and your work.
Special offer: Attend both Modern Calligraphy and Copperplate Calligraphy workshops and receive a 10% discount! Simply select the 'All Day Calligraphy' Ticket.
