The class will focus around the pointed pen calligraphy scripts: copperplate script and modern calligraphy.

Copperplate script is a pure elegance – harmonious, cursive letters written with the flexible nib. Widely used for classical and elegant invitations, diplomas, etc. Modern calligraphy is often described as „Freestyle” calligraphy with the flexible nib. However it is possibile to determine basic frames and rules for it.
