Learn Copperplate Calligraphy

A comprehensive ONLINE course to walk you through all the basics of learning this gorgeous and widely popular script

"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!



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.


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!


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 or Hammermill Color Copy Digital is a good one, but any smooth paper that takes ink well without bleeding!
  • Ink - My favorite is Moon Palace Sumi Ink.
  • Pointed, flexible nib - I would recommend Hunt 22, Gillott 404, or Nikko G for beginners
  • 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!

Basic Supply Kit includes holder, ink, nibs

Though this is my first time hosting/curating/designing an entire course, I've actually taught a similar Copperplate online course through Modern Calligraphy Summit 2.0 to over 1,500 students! Receiving positive feedbacks from my MCS 2.0 students is actually what motivated me to offer more online courses:

"Younghae's portion has taught me to be patient and kind to myself, especially when learning classic copperplate. taking it one letter and stroke at a time!” -Randy

"I did not come into this class thinking I was going to basically relearn pointed pen BUT I totally think it's worth it! I can so feel more freedom in my movement (which is a challenge), my hand is less fatigued and my lines are less shaky than with all my practice the old way. To all the leftys and beginners, STAY WITH IT! I'm far from being there but I'm making progress and I know it will pay off!! - Jacqueline

"Thank you so so much Younghae, your class is so thorough and well taught!!! This is the first time ever I've practiced Copperplate because it's super intimidating but now (after drilling my life away) I love it!" -Cali

"Today's class just paid for the entire Summit for me. I taught myself Copperplate about a year and a half ago using Winters' book and this class made all of it click! I love that I have lifetime access to the videos. Fantastic job!!!!!" -Sheila

"Whoa. Younghae, your class is incredible! I am brand new to pointed pen and it is no joke! I can't wait to practice more and really learn this style. I can already tell it's going to help me so much in all of my other styles of work! Thank you!!" - Cassie

"I cannot wait for your class, Younghae! I LOVED your modern calligraphy summit class, as well. I know some of the information may be repeated but let's be honest, a refresher never hurts...and I know there will be SO much new content that I'm anxious to dive into! I wish I could take an in-person class with you but this is the next best thing! - Tara (MCS 2.0 student who is currently enrolled in this course!)

Hearing back from my online students reassured me that you most definitely CAN learn calligraphy online! With my "Learn Copperplate Calligraphy" course, you won't just get lifetime professional video lessons, but within each module, there will be a written portion as well as handouts/exemplars/etc to make sure you get started off right!

Hi! I'm Younghae of Logos Calligraphy & Design and I'm so excited to be part of your journey! I picked up Copperplate calligraphy about 3 years ago 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!

After teaching more than 2,000 students locally here in Southern California and online through Modern Calligraphy Summit 2.0, I'm thrilled to offer this course to you worldwide so you can learn from the comforts of your home. I'm looking forward to having you in class <3
