Are you interested in Calligraphy? We are so excited to host an ALL-DAY workshop devoted to learning the basics of the classic favorite hand – Copperplate! Join artist and calligrapher in the studio on November 9th from 10am – 4pm.

This class will introduce you to tools used to create pointed pen alphabets. After you are comfortable with the tools you will be shown the basic strokes necessary to create lowercase letters in the copperplate style. After the basic strokes are practiced, the strokes will be combined to form letters.

Wendy Fox took her first calligraphy class in 1984.  She has attended numerous classes and workshops since that time. One of her favorite places to study is Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, where she has taken numerous classes in calligraphy and related arts for over 30 years. She has taught private students, classes and completed commissions for several clients.
