Students will learn to use a steel nib dipped in ink to write in this beautiful style. We will learn how to hold the pen, proper posture, how to warm up, and the basic strokes for the letterforms. We will explore each letter, starting with the lowercase letters, then capitals. Finally, we will learn common ligatures and put words together.

The class is designed for adults, but kids 13 and older are welcome to join with parent supervision. The class is geared towards students with minimal calligraphy experience and will be fun, fast paced and interactive. All supplies and materials for this class will be provided. Students may choose to bring along their favorite writing utensil and notebook to take notes with.

Students will start where we left off in the previous class as we review how to use a steel nib and troubleshoot any problems you are having with letterforms with extra focus on majuscules. We will learn flourishing basics, practice envelope addressing, explore with new inks, and take our copperplate to the next level. Materials will NOT be supplied for this class – please bring your materials from the first class as well as Canson marker paper for practice and fresh nibs. A cushion sheet, paper towels, cups for water and handouts will be available at your table.
