DESCRIPTION

This class will explore aspects of English Roundhand (Copperplate) which are not covered in most instruction manuals. The aim of this class is to help your script evolve into an elegant hand which resembles examples seen in historical specimens, specifically ‘The Universal Penman’.

The knowledge shared in this class comes from hours of careful examination and scrutiny of engravings from the 18th - 19th century. You will be shown intricacies which are hidden in plain sight—characteristics that will make you say: ‘Oh why didn’t I see that before?’

The class does not cover the entire alphabet. However, the concepts that are being covered are used commonly in majority of letters. Therefore, mastering these concepts will help the overall quality of your hand.
