Here at The Calligraphy Box, we specialize in teaching Copperplate. Why? You may ask. Not only is it incredibly beautiful to look at, but learning it provides a strong foundation for many other styles of calligraphy, both modern and traditional. It’s a captivating script that has been admired for centuries. Its graceful curves and delicate lines have the ability to evoke a sense of timeless sophistication and beauty. It’s more than just handwriting.
What’s more, Copperplate calligraphy can provide a meditative and calming escape from the noise of our tech-driven world. Whether you’re watching or learning to write it, this art form allows you to switch off and find peace in creating something beautiful with your own hands.
We have started a video series showing the full alphabet written in Copperplate Calligraphy, one letter at a time. We hope that these videos inspire you to pick up your pen and start writing.
