(Tokyo) Pointed Pen Calligraphy - Uppercase (2pm - 6pm)

DESCRIPTION

In recent years, Copperplate calligraphy has been adopted as an umbrella term that is used to describe a range of pointed pen calligraphy styles that is very similar. The key differences between the scripts stem from reasons like origin, key historical events and more. This style is often favoured when legibility for the art piece/project is important. As such, we often see calligraphy (in Copperplate style) being adopted in wedding invites, envelope addressing or in formal correspondence - A large portion of calligraphy works we are being engaged to write for formal invitations/events, requires proficiency in this script.

In our Uppercase workshop, you'll learn the basic shapes that constitute to majuscules. In our majuscules workshops, we categorise the letters according to the type of basic shape each majuscule has. This will help you better understand how the basic strokes are used in majuscules.
