What you will do

Two session course

Daytime

This 2 day course is an in-depth introduction to Copperplate Script. This form of the script is based on an innovative technology I developed to make the understanding and learning of the script considerably easier.

The technology allows the student to plot exactly where the curves are for the shapes of the letters. Meaning, there is no guesswork in letterform construction. It is based on a principle I call the 4Fold Symmetry and relies on fitting the elliptical shapes of the letters into parallelograms.

We start off by learning the skeletal shapes on which the letters lie. The pencil is the beginning tool of choice as your focus will be on the letter shapes. Next, we move to the nib, once you have gained insight into the basic forms of the letters.

We start with the Majuscules first. These uppercase letters will give us the basis upon which some flourishing can be applied. Being larger letters, we learn to control the tool in a larger space. The Minuscules, or lowercase, are a little trickier as there is more to fit in a smaller space. Majuscules will be covered on the Saturday and minuscules on the Sunday, where we will also look at joining letters to form words.

As this is a formal scripts course, you will be expected to not only study with some videos before hand to gain a better understating of posture, placement of the page and position of the hand, you will also be expected to do homework before hand so you are not starting from scratch in the class.

The class is for beginners as well as intermediate and advanced learners looking for a more fluid approach to their copperplate script. The homework will help you develop a better grasp of tool control allowing for faster learning in the classroom.
