    Come learn copperplate calligraphy from Katherine Torres of Queen Street Calligraphy. We will spend two hours learning the basics of copperplate calligraphy. At the end, you will have an appreciation of this beautiful handwriting style, and have some exposure to how your ancestors drafted business and personal correspondence. At the end of the program, you will have the opportunity to see how inks made from historic recipes compare with their modern equivalents.

    Due to the nature of historic inks, only ages 16 and over will be permitted.
