The elegant script, commonly known as Copperplate, is unmatched in its usefulness for social stationery. The rhythm and grace of the letterform is used on invitations, menus, and place cards, and can take your personal correspondence to a whole new level.

This beautiful script will be explored methodically throughout these class sessions. 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 will also learn to work with color, 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.
