About the Instructor

A writer and aesthete at heart, Rachel has always been in love with the power of words. Circa 2016 saw the start of her calligraphy hobby, and since then a humble interest in the art of writing has grown into a budding full-time career - something she did not even dare to dream of in its inception. While she conducts workshops, does on-site calligraphy, takes on commissions, designs stationery for events, and even has the privilege of working with corporate clients, her favourite part of calligraphy is in the personal touch it lends to writing - something that can’t be replicated.

Find the workshop descriptions below: 

In recent years, Copperplate calligraphy has been adopted as an umbrella term that is used to describe a range of pointed pen calligraphy styles that is very similar. The key differences between the scripts stem from reasons like origin, key historical events and more. This style is often favoured when legibility for the art piece/project is important. As such, we often see calligraphy (in Copperplate style) being adopted in wedding invites, envelope addressing or in formal correspondence - A large portion of calligraphy works we are being engaged to write for formal invitations/events, requires proficiency in this script. In this workshop retreat, we'll be conducting: 

Half Day sessions :  Pick either Minuscules (lowercase) or Majuscules (uppercase)

Full day session: Minuscules + Majuscules retreat where we study together the whole morning to evening and head down to the shops nearby for lunch together.

[Workshop] Exploring Copperplate (ERH)

In this workshop, you are expected to be somewhat familiar with the pen. There will be a short refresher on how to use the pen, but we will not focus on how to use it.

We will focus on the aspects of Copperplate Calligraphy and how to form each letter. 

As Copperplate is written with a slant of about 45°-57°, it is advised that right-handed students use an oblique holder with pointed nib, and left handed students use a straight holder with pointed nib.
