Copperplate is a style of calligraphic writing that uses a pointed steel nib or quill to produce a style of lettering characterized by both thick and thin strokes.

For this class, the first segment will be about education of copperplate calligraphy followed by preparation of the nib and holder. After that, during the practice session, the basic strokes and form of the alphabets will be practiced and explored. Lastly, we will go through putting everything together and working on the form of a word and sentence.

Fee Includes:
Oblique holder, Nikko G / Zebra G Nib, a customized practice pad with various papers, a bottle of walnut ink and a handmade bookmark.
