5 day Summer Workshop - Copperplate Calligraphy - July 24 - 28

Fancy creating beautiful calligraphy with the traditional dip pen?

This is a 5-session workshop to learn about copperplate, a font since the 17th century. Copperplate is characterised by its open flowing hand and contrast of thick and thin strokes using metal pointed nibs.

Slow down and focus – enjoy the tranquility and clarity in mind and the refreshing feeling of creating something with your hand and a pen.

In this workshop, participants will learn:

  • To create lowercase and uppercase alphabets in Copperplate
  • To learn to practice drills and exercises to build muscle memory
  • To develop consistency in your calligraphy
  • To train your eyes in the aesthetics of copperplate calligraphy
  • To focus your mind and express your thoughts through your motor skills

Participants will work on designing a layout and write a quote of your choice as the final project.

 Supplies: A penholder, nib, ink, notes and practice guides will be provided

Suitable for Age 9 or above
