    Pat Blair Copperplate Workshop (Paid Workshop)

    09:00:00 - 4:00pmDayspring Retreat Center, Parrish
    October 27th thru 28th (Saturday & Sunday) is fast approaching and you can expect a fun-filled two days devoted to discovering ways to revise the basic copperplate form to create new looks and personalities.  It will not be devoted to just one hand, or go letter by letter with the alphabet; rather we’ll see what we can do to create our own alphabet. Less experienced participants will be given a brief review of the basics.
