Event Details

This class meets on Saturday/Sunday: April 29 & 30, 2017

10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Offhand Flourishing is an ornate, non-lettering calligraphic art form based on 19th Century pen techniques. The flourished designs are spontaneous and meditative and created with very little pre-planning. The designs are unique to each individual and the results are very rewarding, Historic designs such as scrolls, quills and ornamental cartouches will be explored as well as contemporary floral designs. During the workshop, the student will explore the essential strokes of these versatile designs and learn colouring and embellishing techniques to add depth and interest. There are limitless possibilities with these ornate flourishes. It is an exciting experience and open to students of all skill levels. Prior pointed pen experience is not required.
