Overview: (Afternoon) The Art of Flourishing

Flourishing is one of Charlotte’s favourite things to do in calligraphy. So many people wow at the sight of flourished calligraphy, but many also end up feeling frustrated as they try to attempt recreate and integrate beautiful flourishes into their work.

Fortunately, flourishing can be learned by anyone. Over the years, she has studied many different types of flourishing, curve structures and what makes a combination of lines beautiful to the eye. In this workshop, she will be unravelling the hidden rules governing beautiful flourishes.

She will be teaching you not just how to flourish, but a set of skills that do not set boundaries, create endless possibilities, and an eye that will forever change the way you see flourishing.

It is strongly recommended that you take this class with the Uppercase workshop if you do not have a thorough understanding of the Uppercase letters.
