Copperplate Calligraphy with Nik Pang

When

Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 9 am - 12 pm

Cost

$60 (includes all materials)

Class description

Come learn the beautiful calligraphic style of copperplate script! Copperplate calligraphy, also known as roundhand, engrosser's, and engraver's script is considered by most to be the mother of all pointed pen hands. It still stands as one of the most recognizable and high demand design elements in pointed pen calligraphic works. In this course we will go over a concise version of its history and learn to use dip pens in order to form the basic strokes of its construction. This course is geared towards beginners, but those with more experience may attend it as a refresher course (plus it's always nice to have experienced attendees help beginners). The course is $60 for the 3 hours and includes all the tools (nibs, holders, papers, handouts). Attendees are welcome to bring their own supplies for use if they wish. I also encourage attendees to bring a pencil and ruler with them.
