This Copperplate calligraphy class is not only for the stark beginner, but also for those who have been lettering. If you have never picked up a pointed nib before, never dipped it in ink, never put it to paper and accomplished one stroke, you will be able to do all of that by the end of this class.

If you have been endeavoring to letter in the Copperplate Hand, but you are not real sure if you are doing it right, this class is for you. Your questions will be answered.

If you are an old hand at this, you might consider this class as well. It could re-inspire you, maybe help clean up a pesky letterform that you just really are not sure about, etc.
I know that there are a lot of instructional books out there for calligraphy, but it's hard to find ones with Copperplate as one of the letterforms, so this class would be a good "reference book."

We will be learning: How to sit at your desk, how to ready your nib for accepting the ink, how to put your nib into the oblique pen holder, how to hold your pen, and how to place your paper in front of you. Once you are comfortable with all of this, you will start learning the Lowercase Letterforms, stroke by stroke. Then, the Uppercase.

I have broken the process down into easy, step by step, bite-sized pieces. You can do it! There are 22 videos and 10 PDF's in this class.

(for both classes)
