Instructor: Katie Leavens

Engrosser's Script is a formal form of copperplate calligraphy from around the turn of the 20th century. It is characterized by bold strokes and graceful curves. These modular strokes makes it the perfect script for learning what the pointed pen is capable of. This workshop will focus on improving fine-motor skills and pen control as we learn this historic script. It is open to all skill levels.

Workshops are taught online through Zoom and Canvas. Students will need a computer or smart phone with webcam and microphone, internet and web streaming capacity, and the Zoom application installed to their device. A device to capture images (digital camera, smart phone, or tablet, etc.) is helpful, but not required.
