What you'll learn in this calligraphy & hand lettering class:

In this 4 hrs class you will practice the alphabets (upper and lower case) of casual script calligraphy, which we have called Malibu Breeze Alphabet. You'll practice different exercises to have a better understanding of the technique, the correct lines, shapes and proportions of the letters, control of the tools, etc. The class format is open and relaxed from the comfort of your home with the materials you have on hand.

As tools you can use, from a flexible nib and ink to a pencil (preferably soft), you can also practice with a small flexible tip marker (tombow fudenosoke or pentel touch).

You can use the paper of your choice. However, if you plan on using markers or a flexible nib and ink, we recommend using paper with high content of cotton. (check out our KOUS 100% cotton pads) https://tinyurl.com/y6lhedzn

Intro to Copperplate Calligraphy
Reviewed by Sharon L. on 4/6/2020
Due to the Governor's Stay at Home order, Design KOUS held this workshop through FaceTime and Zoom. I may have been the only person that didn't want to reschedule the workshop, and I'm glad I didn't. Design KOUS provided me with the materials days before our remote workshop. My instructor, Aspacia, was informative on the history of copperplate and provided good instruction. We were able to go at my pace and Aspacia took the time to see my work and my progress, and to provide me with feedback. I highly recommend the workshop by Design KOUS and, if they teach other calligraphy workshops, I will take another workshop with them again in the future.

Excellent course. This workshop really answered my technical questions and gave me a solid foundation to continue practicing copperplate. Aspacia and Rodolfo created a really great atmosphere and provided us with incredible learning materials, demos, and exercises.
