The Cultural Spring – Copperplate Calligraphy

March 6, 2019 @ 10:00 am - April 3, 2019 @ 12:00 pm


Copperplate is a traditional calligraphy script that forms the basis for more modern calligraphy styles. Join us for a workshop in which you will learn how to control a pointed nib before using it to form beautiful letters and words with a dip pen and ink. All materials will be provided.

The five-week course is run by The Cultural Spring and there is a voluntary subscription of £3 per week.

Sessions are held between 10am and noon every Wednesday.

To book a place, e-mail or call (0191) 427 8197.
