CALLIGRAPHIC STYLE OF COPPERPLATE SCRIPT
Sunday, August 6 (9am - 12pm)
About the Course
$70 pre-register at email@example.com. Come learn the beautiful calligraphic style of copperplate script! Copperplate calligraphy, also known as roundhand, engrosser's, and engraver's script, is considered by most to be the mother of all pointed pen hands. It still stands as one of the most recognizable and highly demanded design elements in pointed pen calligraphic works. In this course we will go over a concise version of its history and learn to use dip pens in order to form the basic strokes of its construction.
This course is geared towards beginners but those with more experience may attend it as a refresher course and Nikola Pang do his best to teach to the level of each individual in the second half of the course (plus it's always nice to have experienced attendees help). The course includes all the tools (nibs, holders, papers, handouts). Attendees are welcome to bring their own supplies for use if they wish and encouraged to bring a pencil and ruler with them.
Nikola Pang is a calligrapher from California who has been studying and practicing classic western calligraphy professionally since 2013. He has done event work for clients including Montblanc and Cartier and a number of private commissions. Currently he does contract certificate and special awards work and teaches classes in letterform and calligraphy at Stanford University.
