I live in Sebastopol, and I'm interested in taking a Copperplate class at Fort Mason in San Francisco. The class starts at 6:30pm and ends at 9pm. Is anyone out there interested in taking the class with me? It fills up quickly. Melissa Titone is a fabulous instructor. If you drive, I'll pay you a reasonable amount for gas and bridge toll.

Copperplate is a beautiful fl owing script which was
developed in the seventeenth century and is commonly
used today for invitations to formal events
such as weddings. In this class you will practice the
pressure and release action of the pointed pen while
learning the upper and lower case alphabets, along
with numbers and punctuation. We will also discuss
how to vary the letterforms to create different styles
and cover techniques for addressing envelopes.
All levels of lettering experience are welcome.
Supplies: Paper, pens and ink can be purchased at
the fi rst class for approximately $20. Please bring a
slant board (any stiff, smooth board minimum 18 x
20) and paper towels to class.
