copperplate calligraphy workshops

With the age of technology, we find ourselves typing more often than we write. Birthday cards, framed prints, invitations - the possibilities are endless for us to apply a personal touch with beautiful handwriting!

Join Sharon & Joy for a fun and interactive session in The Basics of Copperplate Calligraphy class! This class is suitable for beginners wanting to try their hand at calligraphy for the first time.

You will be guided through the steps of preparing the various tools used to write copperplate script, learn the drills and exercises to train muscle memory, as well as the basic strokes to write lower case and upper case letters. You will also be guided through how various letters join together to create beautifully handwritten words and sentences. Have questions about copperplate calligraphy? We're here to answer anything you want to know about this beautiful and historical art form.

About the Instructors

Sharon and Joy are seekers of all things colourful, unique, and sometimes downright quirky! The both of us bonded over our love for uncovering beauty in our everyday lives. We've always been huge fans  of calligraphy and lusted  after beautiful lettering on Instagram. We finally decided to take the plunge and embark on a lettering journey together, and we've never looked back since. 
Calligraphy is incredibly therapeutic to the both of us  and we've loved creating beauty from watercolours and a pen. The journey into calligraphy and lettering has been amazing - we have learned so much more about each other, so much more about this traditional art form, and  been welcomed into an amazing community of calligraphers - both local and abroad.

In their free time, both Sharon and Joy enjoy crafting and journalling.
