Mother's Day Weekend Intro to Copperplate Caps + Stamp Making!

  • Postscript 1434 Silver Street Ashland, NE, 68003 United States (map)

Attend by yourself or with you mom! (She'd love you for it!)

In this class you'll first receive an overview of tools and materials used for the Copperplate script. Then, after learning some basic strokes using a traditional steel nib and oblique pen holder, we'll will delve into learning uppercase Copperplate letters. The class will end with guidance on completing a single letter monogram to be used on a personalized return address stamp. 

Your completed letters will be sent home with the instructor to be scanned, set with your address in a font of your choice and sent to an Omaha-based rubber stamp maker. You (and your mom!) will receive your personalized return address stamp in the mail within two weeks. You'll also will leave class with a detailed exemplars and guide sheets for practice at home as well as all supplies provided in class. Lowercase exemplar will be provided for home study. No calligraphy experience (or good handwriting!) needed, advanced or intermediate students will also benefit from guidance by an experienced instructor.
