Copperplate Flourishing

By Eleanor Winters

Starting Date : 18 June 2022

Fees : HK$ 860 or US$ 110

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