"Get the fundamentals down and the level of everything you do will rise"
- Michael Jordan
You've seen calligraphy everywhere on Instagram, Youtube, Pinterest and now you're ready to learn. But the thing is, like any skill, calligraphy is not something you can pick up through random videos and tips here and there. It requires both study and thoughtful practice to develop muscle memory in order to see your script improve over time.
Learn Copperplate Calligraphy is designed to be your 1-stop course packed with instruction, extensive handouts, exemplars, tips/techniques, and suggested homework so you can stop wasting time/money, walk away with a solid foundation and start creating more!
- WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE COURSE? -
This course is made up of 6 teaching modules, with individual lessons within each module. Including all the bonus videos, there are over 35 video lessons provided for you! Each lesson will have a video as well as a written component for you to follow along. Suggested homework will also be given after each module so you can apply what you have learned right away.
- BONUS LESSONS -
More?! YES! I'll be including THREE bonus instructional videos that covers numbers, how I address light/dark envelopes, and walk you through some fun lowercase letter variations that you can incorporate right away to change things up (this lesson alone is valued at $99! ). There will also be a special video just for my lefty friends!
- SUPPLIES NEEDED -
Here are the following supplies you will need to take this course:
- Pen Holder - Straight or Oblique is fine! A good starter holder is the Dual Workshop Holder ($6.99), where you can use it for both.
- Paper to print out guidesheets on - HP Premium Choice Laser Paper is a good one, but if that specific paper is not available in your country, any smooth paper that takes ink well without bleeding!
- Ink - My favorite is Moon Palace Sumi Ink.
- Pointed, flexible nib - Every person's hand is unique; however, if you need suggestions, the following nibs are beginner friendly: Hunt 22, Gillott 404, Brause 361, Nikko G (G nibs are generally more stiff, but may be good for those who are heavy handed).
- Computer/Laptop with Wifi Access
- Printer to print out all the worksheets/homework
Where can I buy my supplies?
I'm excited to share that John Neal Books will be offering basic & deluxe supply kits for those who are taking this course!

With course valued over $400+, I'm excited to offer the entire course for $199 for early registration and $249 for regular registration. Keep in mind that to take my in-person workshops, it would cost you at least $300 to learn just the lowercase/uppercase letters.

Frequently Asked Questions
Hi! I'm Younghae of Logos Calligraphy & Design and I'm so excited to be part of your journey! I picked up Copperplate calligraphy in 2014 and since then, have continued my studies by learning under various master penmen/instructors as well as through my own personal practice times and commissioned work.
One of the reasons why I love teaching this script is not only because of the elegance, but the versatility of Copperplate. You can incorporate it into wedding invitation design, envelope addressing, marriage certificates, custom prints, logo design, and more!
