Arts Daily / Copperplate Calligraphy Workshop

Copperplate Calligraphy Workshop

The Greenville County Museum of Art offers a Copperplate Calligraphy Workshop, May 13 & 14. Join Anne Elser for an introductory look at Copperplate calligraphy, an elegant hand frequently used for formal invitations, documents and bridal events. This pointed pen calligraphy workshop will focus on lowercase letter formation using traditional Copperplate techniques. Less about pretty handwriting and more about drawing each letter, calligraphy is a highly relaxing and meditative practice. In this workshop, you’ll begin to develop a pace and rhythmic motion as you write, giving you a consistency of shapes and letters along with spaces between words and lines. Like yoga for the hands, calligraphy centers, calms and enchants the writer as well as the person admiring it.
