This class is designed for those who are already familiar with Copperplate script and want a refresher.  On our first day, we will review the minuscule letters and all the nitty gritty details such as tine manipulation for squaring tops and bottoms of strokes, terminal dots, spacing, and consistency exercises.  Our second day will be dedicated to tuning up our majuscule letters.  We will review the underlying characteristics that unite them as a family and ways we can improve our capital flourishes.

Workshop will take place over Zoom. Two sessions on Wednesday, July 5 and Wednesday, July 12, 2023, from 10am - 1pm.


Workshop fee:  $25
