2 hour class
Join this class for a Copperplate Calligraphy Class and fine letters that can guide you to create your distinctive lettering, full of character and charm that you can use in your everyday artistic work or your occasional writing!
You will learn Copperplate basic principles and rules that make it so beautiful and delicate, you will find out techniques to create each letter – lowercase or majuscules – with the help of guide sheets and tuition from Amalia, so don’t worry if you haven’t tried something like this before! You are not even supposed to have a fine handwriting!
The class will start with an introduction to the supplies you are going to use during our MagInk Letters trip. You’ll learn some good practice techniques, a little about nib and pen holder, paper and ink, how to match them, how to use them for fine results when using. Then you’ll work on basic strokes and shapes and go in the practice area with letter construction and flourishing.
The class is for absolute beginners. You’ll get your own starter kit to take home with you. This includes a pen holder, a nib, a black ink pot and exercise sheets so you can practice.
There will be plenty of time for 1 to 1 tuition and instruction, so by the end of the session you’ll be able to create your own quote using calligraphy that you can frame at home or just put on top of your desk!
