Copperplate Calligraphy at UNC Botanical Gardens.  Please visit the following link for more information:



with Jessica Yee, Calligrapher and Engraver

Dates: Saturdays October 7, 14, and 21 from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM

Calligraphy means beautiful writing. Calligraphers use a number of different families of letter forms, or “hands.” One of these hands – copperplate – is traditionally used in botanical illustration to identify the subject of the illustration.

This three-session course introduces the basics of copperplate. Students learn how to make letterforms using the correct stroke sequence for lower and upper case letters with dip-pen in ink and watercolor paint. Proficiency will require practice beyond the scope of this course.

No prerequisite.

Fee: $97 ($87 NCBG Members)
