Designing Monograms with Copperplate Calligraphy
9:00 am to 12:00 pm
In this class we will be designing a personalized monogram with a pointed pen AND becoming introduced to Copperplate Calligraphy by focusing on learning uppercase letters.
Students will briefly review tools and materials and instruction on how to use them (a small review if you’re taking this class in conjunction with the July 10th Intro class). After learning some basic strokes using a traditional steel nib and oblique pen holder, students will delve into learning uppercase Copperplate letters and monogram design. Students will leave class with detailed exemplars and guide sheets for practice at home as well as all supplies provided in class. No calligraphy experience (or good handwriting!) needed! Advanced or intermediate students will also benefit from guidance by an experienced instructor.
Included in the cost of the class is a rubber stamp of your monogram! The monogram will be fabricated at a local stamp company and mailed to you two weeks after the class.
