Event Details

Join Ink.Academy and Kathy Milici for the Ink.Academy's first Flourished Caps workshop!  

This workshop is not for the faint of heart! Ramp up your existing pointed pen style by learning the detailed principles and structure of successfully super-flourished script capital letters, indepth techniques and alternate stroke combinations. 

First we will observe and study historic examples from English, French and Dutch writing masters, like Bickham, Van den Velde, Milns, Girault, and Ames. 

With exercises to loosen your hand and challenge your brain, we’ll then move to basic strokes that gradually increase in intricacy and difficulty. 

We’ll play with capital stem extensions, loops, ovals, intricate spirals, graceful direction changes, unusual shapes, tricky intersections and turned exits. Close attention will be paid to managing visual space. The result is super flourished, classic caps with character! 

Kathy believes that anything worth flourishing is worth over-flourishing. Come build your repertoire and have FUN!

The Super Flourished Caps workshop is for the intermediate level calligrapher. Participants need to have experience in pointed pen lettering (Copperplate or Spencerian).
