Level: 
All
Description: 

Spirited, lively, and casual….this class will explore the fun side of Copperplate script, as we learn how to modify the classic forms to produce a more “dressed down” alphabet. Shedding the refinement and “dressed up” persona of Copperplate, we will nod to the classic, but add some elements to change to a more informal personality.

Familiarity with traditional Copperplate is helpful but not essential.

Supplies: 

Moon Palace Sumi ink, or an iron gall ink formula such as McCaffery’s Penman’s Ink; Canson Pro Marker Layout Pad, 9 x 12; your favorite nibs (i.e. Gillott 303, Hunt 22, Hunt 101, Nikko G, Leonardt Principal, Zebra G); your favorite oblique pen holder.
