I will be introducing my system for learning Copperplate Majuscules (capitals) in this 6-hour workshop. We will study basic forms as well as some variations from historical references. 

Beginners are welcome but participants with some previous experience with pointed pen scripts will benefit more from this class.

I keep the class size small so I can spend time and go through the entire process with each participant. This allows me to help with the challenges unique to each and explain things in more detail. 

You will need the following supplies for this workshop:

  1. Oblique Holder. An oblique holder is recommended for right handed participants. Straight holder will do for left-handed participants.
  2. Nibs. I recommend the Hunt 101 or Hunt 22 from Speedball. These are available at Curry’s or De Serres. (Please make sure your nibs are prepared to take ink – new nibs need to be washed with detergent/toothpaste to make them ready for use).
  3. Ink. Walnut ink, Higgins Eternal, Parker Quink Blue-Black, Pelikan Brilliant Black are all good options.

We will provide everyone with printed copies of the instructions as well as the guidelines and paper.

I will only be taking 10 students for this class so please do sign up as places fill up quickly.

Please feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions.
