INTRODUCTION TO COPPERPLATE:
 
Copperplate, or English Roundhand, is the elegant, ornate script of the 18th century writing masters, and is one of the most popular and widely appreciated styles of calligraphy in use today.
 
In this detailed introduction to Copperplate, students learn to use the flexible, pointed pen and follow a step-by-step sequence covering basic strokes, minuscules, spacing, letter connections, capitals, and numbers.  This class is designed for students who have had no experience with Copperplate, but those wishing an in-depth review of the alphabet are welcome.
 
Eleanor Winters is the "Master" of Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy.  She has been a working calligrapher since the 1970s, and an active participant in the international calligraphy community for more than three decades, as a teacher, author, fine art and commercial calligrapher.  Her five calligraphy instruction books have been used by students worldwide.  Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy has served as the introduction to Copperplate calligraphy for generations of pointed pen enthusiasts.
 
This online Introduction to Copperplate is a unique opportunity to participate in an ongoing beginners' class, taught via live Zoom meetings over a six week period.  By limiting the number of students to 10, the small-class format gives online students the next best experience to an in-person classroom.
