For students who are ready to go beyond the basics, this workshop expands the boundaries of Copperplate. Without sacrificing classical principles of shape, weight, slant and spacing, students experiment with variations in form, size and scale (letter proportions), working with some simpler letterforms as well as Copperplate letters that are more elaborate and ornamental. We will look at examples from three centuries of Copperplate masters.
