Engrosser’s Script Calligraphy 
With Katie Leavens

Engrosser’s Script is a formal form of copperplate calligraphy from around the turn of the 20th century. It is characterized by bold strokes and graceful curves. These modular strokes makes it the perfect script for learning what the pointed pen is capable of. This class will focus on improving fine-motor skills and pen control as we learn this historic script. It is open to all skill levels.
