Copperplate Flourishing

With Eleanor Winters

Starting date : 1 September 2024

Fees : HK$ 740 or US$ 95

Workshop Description

The addition of flourishes to a page or even a line of Copperplate adds an elegant and lively decorative quality to your calligraphy.  Through a series of pencil exercises and simple drawing techniques, students are introduced to some of the basic forms and patterns of eighteenth century Copperplate flourishes and cartouches.  We will examine and analyze historical models to understand and recreate some of the beautiful shapes and patterns of the English writing masters.


This workshop is for students who have a basic working knowledge of Copperplate.  Some experience with Copperplate variations is helpful but not essential.
