Description

This intermediate class is devised for all calligraphers and brush script students with basic experience who want to go on and learn how to flourish beautifully, with confidence. And let's face it, who doesn't want to execute a great flourish?

Calling all brush pen letterers, and calligraphers! Without a doubt, while everyone wants to flourish we find it challenging and lack the confidence because of the saying that you shouldn’t flourish unless you know how is actually true. Nothing detracts more from good calligraphy than a bad flourish.

Don’t be deterred. As you do not need to be a master penman to learn how to flourish. You just need the essential grammar of flourishing. In fact, once you have been taught, and understand the grammar, flourishing, like music, is just another language, with structures that can be learned and applied. Flourishing is useful as it broadens the understanding of dynamics of space and line and thus helps us to become better at creating gorgeous calligraphy. and brush pen writing.

Correct ! The techniques associated with good flourishing also help us to become better calligraphers and lettering artists. Studying all three benefits all three. This three-hour class is devised for calligraphers who want to improve their writing (whether you work with pen and ink creating copperplate or italic, or a Tombow creating brush script). Understanding and then applying the information provided in this class and practicing it will enable you to become a fluent and confident flourisher, and also a much better calligrapher.

The class will take you through a series of exercises which will enable you to create smooth flowing curves that relate well to your word or title and will also teach you the 6 forms of the flourish. Which particular letters you can flourish from (other than the obvious ones), how to flourish your capital letters, and word endings, and how to know the difference between a good and poor flourish.
