Sept 16

Copperplate Calligraphy workshop

with Jill Quillian, Calligraphy and Silk artist
Saturday, September 16, 10am-4pm

Remember when school desks had a slanted top and a hole where we put the ink bottle? That’s when Spencerian and Copperplate writing were popular in the 1900’s. These two hands are where our cursive writing came from. By using a special pointed pen nib, we will construct each letter of the alphabet with thick and thin lines creating a beautiful script. We will learn the lower case alphabet and, of course, the majestic Capitals. This style of writing is very popular with calligraphers today. By the end of the two day class we will be writing sentences and quotes. Our primary goal will be to discover the fun of writing with real ink and pen.
   A Colorado resident since 2012, Jill Quillian has taught calligraphy in summer school for 20 years, and at workshops, at clinics, through calligraphy guilds and at art stores. Her Bachelor and Master’s degrees are teaching the gifted with a minor in Art. 

$125, $15 Materials fee in class       Register
