Description

If you've enjoyed learning how to write Copperplate calligraphy, but you're not quite sure how to string individual letters together to form beautiful words and sentences... this is the class for you!

Hi, I'm Doris, and I love sharing insights from my own calligraphy practice.

In this class, we'll talk about

  • mathematical vs. visual evenness of letter spacing

  • connecting lowercase letters to one another

  • connecting uppercase letters to lowercase ones,

  • how to make spacing decisions, and

  • spacing specific letter pairs based on their anatomy

Let's practice together as I talk you through the explanations, and join me in writing out specific exercises for connecting and spacing in real time.

You'll be writing specific letter pairs, a couple of necklaces, and a couple of pangrams, thereby practicing how to connect and space all letters of the alphabet.

Even if you're brand new to calligraphy, you'll find these simple exercises easy and effective to improve your writing.
