This introductory workshop will take you through one of my absolute favorite pointed pen scripts. Copperplate script is derived from a form of handwriting called English Roundhand and though it was widely used from the 16th-19th century..it continues to be a favored script today. If you are interested in dipping into pointed pen calligraphy, learning this script will give you a strong foundation of the classic letterforms. We will be using a flexible steel nib to achieve the delicate hairlines and thick shades.
Whether you are an absolute beginner or an experienced calligrapher, all are welcome! We will begin from the ground up and go over:
- Introduction to pointed pen
