Materials for this program

This elegant script, commonly known as copperplate, is unmatched in its usefulness for social stationery. With its rhythm and grace, the letterform often appears on invitations, menus, and place cards and can take your personal correspondence to a whole new level.

Starting from the beginning with basic tools and mechanics, students discover what is needed to develop their skills and how to recognize the small details that make this style of writing so appealing. They also learn to work with color and how to use this hand in different sizes and in various applications—from writing in a simple format to working on a more artistic expression of a text. No prior calligraphy experience is needed.
