Workshop Description

Join Nina in learning Copperplate -- a pointed-pen script that continues to be a favorite among calligraphers for its beautiful, elegant, and timeless letter forms. This is Part 2 (majuscules) of her Introduction to Copperplate series. Although Part 1 (minuscules) is not a requirement to take this class, it is highly recommended that students have some previous knowledge of Copperplate minuscule letters. In this beginner-friendly workshop, you will review the pointed pen basics and learn how to study and write the Copperplate majuscule letters stroke by stroke. From Nina's experience, the best way to learn is to roll up your sleeves and dive right in! Here's a quick run-down on what you can expect from each session: Session 1 - Basics, Basic, Basics * Materials * Writing zone * Rules of Copperplate * Letter analysis/study * Parent forms * Basic strokes Session 2 - Letter Characteristics & Construction * Letter proportions * Spacing between majuscules and minuscules * Letter Group 1: PBR, TF, IJ * Letter group 2: HKVWZ Session 3 - Letter Characteristics & Construction (Continued) * Letter group 3: UYXQ * Letter group 4: OECGD, SL * Letter group 5: AMN Session 4 - Final Exemplar & How to Study * Writing an exemplar and abecedarian * How to study other exemplars * Introduction to variations and developing a preference
