Copperplate for Beginners: Copperplate (common name of English Roundhand) is a beautiful letterform made with a flexible pointed pen nib. The pointed pen allows to thick downward strokes and hairline thin upward strokes, creating graceful, flowing letterforms in a script sequence. This class provides overview of foundational principals of Copperplate Script. Warm-ups, basic strokes, lowercases and uppercases, spacing, and understanding of the word 'roundhand' will be taught.
Italic for Beginners: Italic involved in the early fifteenth century during the Italian renaissance, in the form of a cursive hand developed from the Humanist minuscules, the origins of both letterforms lay in the ninth to tenth century Carolingian scripts, Italic is the most versatile letterform and can be used for formal scrolls and certificates, or for more expressive forma of calligraphy. In this class, you will learn how to write formal Italic: its basic strokes, rhythms and layouts. We will start with lowercases and move to simple uppercases.
Ornamental Capitals: The Ornamental script is a dramatic variant of the basic Spencerian. Added to the basic letterforms are beautiful swirls that follow rules of symmetry, as well as dramatic shades and fine hairlines. This workshop is all about writing beautiful capitals using such ornate strokes. It turns your basic knowledge of Copperplate or Spencerian alphabet to into creating attractive majuscules. In this class, you will explore how to use muscular and whole arm movement to write step by step each capital.Jump to our studio page for new dates and registration!
