Copperplate Master Class in Capital Variations
With Pat Blair
Through The Gentle Penman

This workshop begins where most others leave off! 

In this workshop, we take an intense look at the copperplate capital form to discover what it is that makes these letters sing. Designed for those students who have a basic knowledge of the copperplate form, and wish to strengthen their skill and knowledge of this beautiful pointed pen lettering, we will start with the basic shaded capital stroke, analyzing the gradual pressure and shaping which gives the lettering its elegant look. We will refine and alter shapes, resulting in many alternate forms, all the while retaining the proper proportions and shading to retain elegant look. These capital variations will provide many options for design. 

HKD 1,000.00 or USD 130.00

Live presentation and will be recorded and available for 60 days following the final class. 

Date: 21, 28 March; 11 & 18 April 2022
Time: 20:30 PM – 22:30 PM (Hong Kong Time)
