Flourishing Guide

Are you passionate about flourishes too?

In calligraphy, lettering or brushlettering, flourishes can be amazing and emphasize even more the letters they surround. But sometimes you get frustrated creating them. Properly arranged flourishes are able to enhance the message of the letters. 

You need to practice, but…

If you want to learn more about flourishes, practicing is of course an important part of it. In this workshop you will learn, how to practice the right way to really improve your flourishes. 

There is also a system behind the structure of well placed curved strokes. Certain rules and principles you can learn to have more clarity about good and bad solutions in flourished artworks. During the workshop we examine artworks and talk about all challenges and problems you might face in the process.

Including the „Guide to Flourishing“

In this workshop you will also get a guide to flourishing (new Version 33 pages 19th of April 2022) It contains all information you need to learn how to create flourishes around your lettering. You will have all important rules about creating these beautiful curves.

From your homeoffice

The Flourish Workshop you can attend via Zoom. You will get the material by mail before the workshop, so you don’t need to prepare anything in particular. As tools i recommend just a pencil, a ruler and a rubber. If you prefer to work rather with a brushpen (small) or a nib, that’s ok too.

„I thoroughly enjoyed learning how to flourish with Robert, the skills I learnt during our workshop has increased my confidence in my ability to now flourish my calligraphy to a standard I am happy with.“ Lindsey Gribble – Calligrapher

„I can only recommend the Flourish Workshop to all flourish lovers! Robert has a lot of tips and tricks and the course was very eye-opening. For all those who love to flourish, take a course with Robert!“ Gloria Wolf – Lettering Artist
„Why do his flourishes always look perfect? This question persisted and I booked the advanced course with Robert. His deep knowledge already impressed me during my brushlettering beginners course in 2018 and it was almost clear that the script and the workshop were full of well-prepared knowledge. I can only advise every beginner to start with a workshop before starting their creative work – you simply save yourself a huge amount of frustration and the exercises are goal-oriented and good results are quickly visible“. Kerstin Rackerseder – Calligrapher
