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.

In our revamped workshop series, our Introduction to Generic Copperplate will walk you through a few selected Copperplate styles and understand some basic fundamental differences between the different hands. This will help you be more aware of what to look out for. Subsequently, you will learn how to form basic strokes, form letters and words in a chosen Copperplate style depending on the artist that is teaching the session.
