These classes are not hosted by John Neal Books.

Copperplate is an elegant script style of lettering characterized by thick, shaded downstrokes and hairline upstrokes. In this workshop, we will study the unique, pressure-sensitive motion of the pointed flexible nib. Our focus will be on the lower case letter forms. We will analyze the unique proportions of these classic forms, and learn to control the pressure to achieve beautiful, graceful shades.

Thurs, Aug. 20 and Fri. Aug. 21, 2 hours each day
