Calligraphy Two: Copperplate with Anne Elser
Beginner to Intermediate | Fee: $190 | Min. 3/ Max. 7
This is an introductory look at Copperplate, an elegant and elastic hand frequently used for formal invitations, documents and bridal events. Completely enchanting, the dramatic thicks and thins of this delicate hand will make you swoon.
During the six week course, students will be given handouts and guide sheets, learning the upper and lower case characters. We will also address spacing and layout for addressing envelopes.
Calligraphy is less about pretty handwriting, but more about DRAWING each and every letter. Its about establishing a pacing and rhythmic motion as you write - giving you a consistency of shapes and letters, and spaces in between words and lines. It is highly relaxing and meditative. Like yoga for the hands.

Anne Elser got a calligraphic kudos from Martha Stewart Wedding's editor Shira Savada recently on the PaperCupSketchbook.com blog from a story named "Inside Shira's Sketchbook." Can't resist sharing with all of you. :)

Let me first say that this past Summer has been my busiest and most fulfilling yet as a professional calligrapher. The interest in the subject has recently exploded and I see no signs yet of it slowing. My Calligraphy classes are selling out at Binders and brides and their families are knocking excitedly at my door for work, work and more work. I am very happy. VERY happy.
