Have you always admired beautiful handwriting and wanted to know how to achieve it? Then this beginner’s workshop is for you! You will learn the basics of Copperplate Script, a type of calligraphy with a beautiful flow that is easy to learn. This script is created with an elbowed penholder, a fine-pointed flexible nib, and carbon-based ink. Your cards and invitations will take on a whole new flair! Bring a ruler, a pencil, and a bagged lunch. The rest of the materials and handouts will be supplied in class. Instructor Diannah Benson has taught calligraphy with the Etobicoke Board of Education for 10 years and is certified to teach calligraphy through the Calligraphic Arts Guild of Toronto.
