Copperplate Variations - The Capitals

By Eleanor Winters

Starting Date : 04 June 2022

Fees : HK$ 740 or US$ 95

Workshop Description

The range of Copperplate capital options is one of the glories of studying calligraphy.  Copperplate capitals can be simple and elegant or elaborately flourished.  We will consider the basic proportions of these letters and explore ways to simplify them without sacrificing their elegance and beauty.  Following that, we will examine a wide range of decorative capitals, based on models from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, and learn how to create letters that are consistent with our individual skills and aesthetic judgement.
