Copperplate for Beginners


Copperplate for Beginners

from 560.00

Copperplate is a calligraphic hand that is written using a sharp pointed nib. Originating as early as the 16th century, the classic style requires a lot of dedication and regular practise to master.

We aim to set students on a journey with copperplate calligraphy so that they can guide their own practise sessions and develop an eye for precision, proportion and control. We are essentially handing over years of practice and knowledge in this class – so you avoid forming any bad habits at the early stage. (more info below)

For a start, you will learn how to sit and hold a pencil correctly, followed by the dip-nib pen and how to care for it; you will draw your own grid lines and find out tips on how to modify it; understand the fundamental strokes; practise over and over again; learn to write the Majuscule; the Minuscule and finally, forming words, understanding alternates and creating an artwork for a mini exhibition for your fellow classmate. You may also invite a friend to visit. 

There are no shortcuts to mastering this hand. This is why our workshops have been structured into 4 weekly sessions to optimise concentration. It will also allow you to practise at home, return for a follow up, review and improvement.

Often, we tell our students that the classes will be tough, rigorous and possibly frustrating, but the rewards of understanding this intricate hand are massive.
