Nikola Pang will run a Copperplate workshop from 10 am to 2 pm Sunday 2 April 2017 at the Long Island Penshow, Hempstead, Long Island  New York 11727.  www.LIpenshow.com

Here is Nikola's description of his workshop:


Come learn the beautiful calligraphic style of copperplate script! Copperplate calligraphy, also known as roundhand, engrosser's, and engraver's script is considered by most to be the mother of all pointed pen hands. It still stands as one of the most recognizable and high demand design elements in pointed pen calligraphic works. In this course we will go over a concise version of its history and learn to use dip pens in order to form the basic strokes of its construction. This course is geared towards beginners but those with more experience may attend it as a refresher course (plus it's always nice to have experienced attendees help beginners). There is a small materials fee of $25 for holders, nibs, handouts, and papers though attendees are welcome to bring their own supplies. I also encourage attendees to bring a pen or penci with them.


Here are some Exemplars from Nikola Pang
