DESCRIPTION

In this workshop, you are expected to be somewhat familiar with the pen. There will be a short refresher on how to use the pen, but we will not focus on how to use it.

We will focus on the aspects of Copperplate Calligraphy and how to form each letter. 

As Copperplate is written with a slant of about 45°-57°, it is advised that right-handed students use an oblique holder with pointed nib, and left handed students use a straight holder with pointed nib.
