Workshop Description

Welcome to the Festive Flourish! I am so excited to share this class with you. Offhand flourishing is a peaceful and meditative skill that can add a unique touch of magic to your calligraphic artwork.

Throughout this class, I will help you to unleash the wonder and magic of the flourish. My introduction to the pointed pen world was through offhand flourishing. It was the first skill I learned with the pointed pen and remains my greatest ally in my calligraphic journey. At first glance, offhand flourishing can look overly complicated and confusing but once you see the underlying structure of compound curves, these ornate flourishes can be structured to suit any design need. Whether you want to add a special touch of delight to an envelope or card, enhance your calligraphic work or create unique stand-alone designs that are suitable for framing, this class will give you the skills to pursue endless ideas. Throughout this workshop, we will explore the basics of offhand flourishing and the skills that make the designs intuitive rather than pre-planned. With the knowledge of a few basic rules and strategies, you will be able to create stunning designs that are unique and one of a kind. You will be amazed at how we can build complex or simple

designs utilizing the same beautiful strokes. Cultivate a sense of play as you approach this class and

bring your own style to these designs. An incredible world is waiting for you here as we celebrate

the beauty of the season together.
