Traditional Calligraphy: Copperplate Script (with strokes variation)

We will work with a fine variation on the Copperplate style, using some alternative strokes that add elegance and makes it visually lighter than the traditional hand. This variation works very well for texts written in an spiral shape or wavy lines, as well as flowing in a natural way when written in a straight line.

If you have already done Copperplate, it will be a great addition to your acquired skills. If you have accomplished Modern Calligraphy and would like to challenge yourself, Copperplate is the style on which all pointed pen modern calligraphy styles are based on.

Traditional Calligraphy: Foundational Hand

8 weeks course, 2-hour weekly session, £80

The Foundational Hand was developed by Uruguayan British calligrapher Edward Johnston (1872-1944) at the turn of the 20th Century, from studies of 9th and 10th Century Carolingian manuscripts, in particular, the Ramsey Psalter. This beautifully designed alphabet offers a strong understanding of minuscule structure.

Another variation of a traditional hand but with a modern twist, this intriguing style will look beautiful in wedding stationery or that special greeting card. It has a WOW factor determined by its elegant strokes, not as cursive as the more common modern style and with a strong reminiscence of traditional writing. This course is suitable for beginners and improvers.

What our students are saying about our Courses

 

"Calligraphy lessons with Rosana are a pleasure and I enjoy them immensely. The lessons take place in a supportive and friendly environment. They are perfectly paced with appropriate materials and I feel encouraged to develop my writing and incorporate what I have learnt into personal projects" Stephen G.

 

"I just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed your calligraphy classes! I have always envied people who were good at art and wished that I felt confident enough to make something creative and beautiful. You have help me to do just that. Thank you for taking care to give us easy to follow, step by step instructions that made each style come to life and eventually become our own. All the projects I have done have made me very proud and I still can’t quite believe they are my own work! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your classes to anyone interested in calligraphy – indeed I regularly do" Hannah M.
