Intro to Copperplate Calligraphy

Learn the basics of Copperplate calligraphy style. Through practice and history, we will learn how this style became so popular in the eighteenth century and how it came back to life nowadays. We will cover the basics, such as how to have a proper position when we sit down, papers, inks and how the ink flows, nibs and penholders, or how to build letterforms or warm up exercises. No previous experience is needed, this class will help us to have a foundation and a technique in pointed pen calligraphy. We will be working all these aspects through the writing of a poem, which you will take at home plus the encouragement to keep practicing and exploring this ancient world and how it has influenced in our way of writing till nowadays. Basic supplies for this class will be provided.  Teacher: Marta Llorens
