Often misused as an umbrella term for all forms of pointed-pen calligraphy, Copperplate most accurately refers to a wide variety of styles produced after studying the copper plate engravings used to print and redistribute the artwork of English round hand-writing masters as far back as the 16th century. In this class taught by artist Bonnie Glick, students will have the unique opportunity to train their hands to this craft. Penning this beautiful and classic lettering can be a deeply-satisfying creative outlet, as well as a sure-cure for Cabin Fever.  The class fee includes a pen holder and nib, an ink well, a mixing brush for loading the ink and a 1 oz. container of walnut ink crystals that students will take home. An opportunity to work with Arches French paper will be included, with basic instruction on layout and design.  Instructor Bonnie Glick is a calligrapher and artist trained in Italic, Copperplate, Uncial, and Gothacized Italic lettering. She has been a member of the calligraphy guild of Idaho, the Idaho Inkspots, for many years. She attends continuing education and training through the guild each spring and fall with instruction from internationally recognized calligraphers and attends the international calligraphy conference every other year. Her love of calligraphy started as a child when her mother bought her a set of calligraphy pens. She has developed her craft since then and spends many happy hours, especially in the winter months, practicing various hands. NOTE: students need to note in their registration if they will be writing with their right or left hands, so that appropriate pen nibs can be ordered.  $64  Registration Required
