Join Cheryl Dyer, Omaha calligrapher and lettering artist, as she leads students in learning the basics of pointed-pen calligraphy. Specifically, the class will focus on the lowercase letters of a Copperplate alphabet.
Students will be given a brief history of Copperplate Script, an overview of tools and materials and instruction on how to use them. After learning some basic strokes using a traditional steel nib and oblique pen holder, students will delve into learning the lower case alphabet. Students will leave class with a detailed exemplars and guide sheets for practice at home as well as all supplies provided in class. Uppercase 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.
This workshop, which will be capped at ten students, is designed for beginners but is also beneficial to anyone who would like to work on perfecting their craft. Supplies are included in the cost of tuition, $85
