In this 15-hour calligraphy retreat, you’ll learn the foundations of Copperplate calligraphy, starting from the basic strokes of the lowercase alphabet to the fancier swashes of its capital letters. Then, we’ll move into flourishes and monoline applications before adapting our wrist pressure to softer tools such as the Pentel Touch brush pens.
