The “pen-ultimate” of beautiful writing – the copperplate style of calligraphy is difficult to learn, and experience and practice are essential — but everyone starts somewhere, so let’s calligraph together! We’ll cover the lower- and upper- case alphabet; and work to perfect letters that are beautiful and useful for invitations, envelopes or any especially elegant application. Some calligraphic experience is necessary. Please bring a basic layout pad, Higgins Eternal ink and a penholder with flexible nibs. Nibs can be purchased on the first night of the course.
