Join Miranda Songer on this new three-week course introducing you to Copperplate Calligraphy. This traditional technique was developed in the 18th century as a way of writing that was incredibly difficult to forge. This results in beautiful, elegant lines which dance across the page. You will work with both ink and gouache and using a straight nib and swan-neck pen. You do not need to be able to draw or have already sumptuous handwriting - copperplate is all about making small angles and adjusting the pressure of your pen. This delicate technique requires a calm and quietness so is a fabulous way to find some peace and lose yourself for a couple of hours.?
