This class is for students who want to improve their Copperplate script and trouble shoot common issues.

In this intensive bootcamp, Calligraphy Companion will focus mainly on the details of Copperplate script (e.g. slant, oval forms, letter proportions and ratios, shades, hairlines, etc.) and the methods for achieving uniformity in those facets. Technical aspects of practice such as pen and paper angles, pen grip, tine movement, squaring tops and bottoms of stems, etc. will also be discussed in this class.

Each student will have one-on-one time with the instructors that is catered to his or her needs.

REQUIREMENTS: To get the most out of this bootcamp, they recommend that students have some knowledge and experience with Copperplate script, such as basic letter structures of both uppercase and lowercase.
