I am excited to offer a workshop on Copperplate Calligraphy.
I will be introducing my system for learning Copperplate Calligraphy in this 4-hour workshop. We will work through the fundamental forms that make up the minuscule (small) and majuscule (capital) letters of the alphabet.
This class is open for both beginners and those with experience in Copperplate or other pointed pen scripts. Those new to this style of writing will leave with a good idea of the structure of the letters and start off with a solid foundation. The more experienced participants will be able to refine their work under my guidance and work on any challenges they are facing.
I keep the class size small so I can spend time with each participant and work through the process with them. This allows me to help students with the challenges unique to each and explain things in more detail.
You will need the following supplies for this workshop:
- Oblique Holder. An oblique holder is recommended for right handed participants. Straight holder will do for left-handed participants.
- Nibs. I recommend the Hunt 101 or Hunt 56 from Speedball. These are available at Curry's or De Serres. (Please make sure your nibs are prepared to take ink - new nibs need to be washed with detergent/toothpaste to make them ready for use).
- Ink. Walnut ink, Higgins Eternal, Parker Quink Blue-Black, Pelikan Brilliant Black are all good options.
We will provide everyone with printed copies of the instructions as well as the guidelines and paper.
The venue is located in North York near the Don Mills subway station - about 30 minutes by TTC from downtown Toronto.
I will only be taking 10 students for this class so please do sign up as places fill up quickly.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
The venue is TTC accessible - a short walk from the Don Mills subway station on line 4. This is about a 35 minute ride in the subway from Downtown Toronto. Free street level parking is available at the venue.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please feel free to contact Salman at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
What's the refund policy?
50% refund is available up to 2 weeks before the event. We cannot offer a refund after this time. We will, however, refund the full ticket price (minus any fees) in case the event is cancelled.
Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
Sure - not a problem. Please make sure we know if you are doing so.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
Yes - we don't mind it at all. However we would appreciate if we were provided with the name of the attendee so we can write their name on the placecard.
