Introduction to Brush Pen Copperplate Calligraphy Workshop
Join Marilyn, founder of Eterate Calligraphy for an enriching Introductory Workshop of Brush Pen Copperplate Calligraphy at ACTUS häuse, Mandarin Gallery.

The beginner-friendly workshop will provide you with knowledge of calligraphy terminology and tools to get started on your calligraphy journey. You will get to understand techniques to use a brush pen through warm-up drills and practice strokes. After getting familiar and comfortable with the new medium, we will work through all 26 copperplate minuscule. At the end of the session, we will go through the writing of some common phrases, supplies, and questions.

All materials are included and are yours to take home for continued practice. No prior experience is required. If you have taken a pointed pen or brush calligraphy workshop, you’re more than welcome to experiment with this new, portable and convenient medium. The workshop will focus on copperplate minuscule forms and writing techniques. Feedback and personal guidance will be provided. I look forward to sharing this passion of mine with you!
