Pointed Pen Personalities

By Pat Blair

Starts 1 Nov 2021



Workshop Description

The pointed pen is a wonderful tool, strong enough to achieve bold, dramatic forms and yet, fine enough to produce the merest whisper of a line. In this class, we will start with a brief review of the Classic copperplate form, an elegant and expressive hand. We will then find that with subtle (and not so subtle) differences in shape and form, many variations in the letterforms can be achieved.


We will learn how to give the hand many personalities, just by changing strokes, angles, slant and weight, from fun and causal to elegant and dressed-up. We will learn how to vary one or more characteristics to create a variety of styles, study flourishing techniques and stylized capitals.
