For students who are familiar with the basic principles of Copperplate and are interested in pursuing more advanced study, this workshop introduces many new aspects of the hand.  Without sacrificing classical principles of shape, weight, slant and spacing, students experiment with variations in form, size and scale, working with simpler, less decorative forms of Copperplate as well as more ornamental, flourished letterforms.

Using the techniques for embellishing letters can also serve as the basis for understanding flourishing techniques.  Through a series of pencil exercises and simple drawing techniques, as well as studying examples from The Universal Penman, the class will learn the basic forms and patterns of 18th century Copperplate flourishing.  We will discuss when and where flourishing is appropriate and how it can be applied to a piece of writing.
