October 28, 2009

This fall, Hagerstown Community College's Center for Continuing Education is offering a course on English Round Hand, on Mondays, from Nov. 2 to Nov. 23 in the Career Programs Building on HCC's main campus.

English Round Hand, also known as Copperplate, is a form of writing that developed during the 18th century and was used extensively for invitations and formal events.

Course topics include the use of the flexible pointed nib and the basic minuscule and majuscule letter forms that were most commonly used.

A materials kit with all the supplies can be purchased during the first class session from the instructor for a $20 fee. Course cost is $70.
