Calligraphy workshop, Copperplate

  • Bürogemeinschaft Raumer-7 Raumerstraße 7 10437, Berlin (map)

This 4-hour calligraphy workshop is an introduction to the letterforms of the Copperplate hand. Copperplate, a pointed-pen script hand, was developed in 16th century England.

We will work with an oblique pen holder, pointed pen nib, ink and practice pads with grid and slant lines. Our main focus will be on learning various amounts of pressure to apply to our pens to produce thick and thin strokes. We will practice minuscule letters grouped according to similar letterforms. 

All materials will be supplied. Feel free to bring in your favorite quote and/or project ideas for practice and discussion.

Workshop held by Laura Di Piazza.
