YOU KNOW THE BASICS: NOW WHAT?

Taken a few introductory classes, but not sure where to go next? This is the class! I will work with you at the level you're at, plus address a few common overall difficulties that we all struggled with. Whatever your level, as long as you know the basics, you're very welcome to come and give your copperplate a bit of a polish with me.

We will be working on refining your script to get you a few steps up from where you're at. I'll spend time talking about on ovals, parallel shades, and connectors - or other elements that you're struggling with. We'll talk about difficult letters (like the lowercase s!) and how to balance your shades and flourishes to create a polished and professional script.

We will hit the ground running in the expectation that everyone knows how to use their pen and understands, more or less, the basic strokes. (It's fine if your first class was the morning class on the same day, but it's also fine if you haven't done copperplate in years and just want to brush up!)

Bring your own supplies if you have them! I will have some stock of nibs, paper and ink on hand that you can purchase, but I am anticipating that most people with an interest in this course will already have their preferred tools (and of course, if you have attended the morning class, you will have everything you need.) Please bring your preferred pen holder.

However each participant will also be provided with a few goodies, including

  • Selection of vintage

  • Good quality practice paper

  • Exemplars and resource lists

This workshop runs from 2.00pm to 5pm. Please be on time - we have a lot to cover and we won't be able to run late.

Please note: Bookings are final - I can't offer refunds - but if you can't come, you are welcome to transfer your booking to a friend. Organise it with them and let me know - I will need to change the names. (And if you can't, you are also welcome to pick up your kit and supplies, and we will see if anything else can be worked out.)
