COPPERPLATE MASTERCLASS, lower case
With Pat Blair

THURSDAY, OCT. 6 AND FRIDAY, OCT. 7, 2022
11:30 AM - 1:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time (East Coast United States)

LEVEL: intermediate to advanced
A basic knowledge of copperplate is needed.

This workshop begins where most others leave off! 

In this workshop, we take an intense look at the copperplate 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 stroke, practicing the gradual pressure and shaping which gives the lettering its distinctive look. 

A study of spacing, including drills, letter connections, and setting up text as a connection will follow. Our efforts will result in a beautiful grace and elegance, subtle changes can give very dramatic results.
