Copperplate Calligraphy Workshop

with instructor Anne Elser

Register for this event

Join us for an introductory look at Copperplate calligraphy, an elegant hand frequently used for formal invitations, documents and bridal events. This pointed pen calligraphy workshop will focus on lowercase letter formation using traditional Copperplate techniques

Less about pretty handwriting and more about drawing each letter, calligraphy is a highly relaxing and meditative practice. In this workshop, you’ll begin to develop a pace and rhythmic motion as you write, giving you a consistency of shapes and letters along with spaces between words and lines. Like yoga for the hands, calligraphy centers, calms and enchants the writer as well as the person admiring it.

Links to online resources for materials (estimated cost $75) will be provided in the confirmation email upon registration.
