Introduction to Copperplate

September 15 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Copperplate is an elegant and traditional style of calligraphy, and a personal favourite of calligrapher Angela Reed. In this workshop, Angela will guide you through the basics of writing with a pointed nib to create beautiful handwritten letters and words. The ticket price includes a calligraphy starter kit to take home.

Participants are asked to arrive around 10-15 minutes ahead of their workshop. Workshop bookings are non-refundable and non-transferable. Please refer to The Biscuit Factory website for full policy details.
