Live Online Workshop 

Advanced Copperplate by Eleanor Winters 2021

For students and calligraphers familiar with the basics of Copperplate as well as the fundamentals of flourishing, this class explores ways of applying our skills, focusing on layout and design and the use of color in creating a finished piece of calligraphic artwork.  We will also focus on fine-tuning our Copperplate with the goal of more beautiful letterforms and consistent spacing. By limiting the number of students to 15, the small-class format gives online students the next best experience to an in-person classroom.
