Have you ever wondered how to achieve such natural, organic flourishes in your calligraphy? There are a lot of thoughts out there about how to do flourishes, but none of them really show you where to place them and how to strategically think through them. While there is an element of personal style and flair that goes into flourishes, there are some general rules that you can follow and practice so that you can start to launch your own flourishing style.

In this class...

  • We'll identify seven different locations where flourishes can be added

  • We'll look at 25 variations of flourishes by using and building on basic shapes

  • Practice flourishes within a composition with words and short phrases

You'll also get free downloads such as guidelines, worksheets, and assignments to help you out.

This class is geared towards the calligrapher who already has basic knowledge on how to write the lowercase and uppercase alphabets (I'm coming out with a class on this soon!).

You don't need any fancy tools. Just a pencil, eraser, and my worksheets to get you started.

Let’s begin this journey on flourishing confidently together. I’ll see you in class.

Happy writing!
