Flourishing One Day Workshop - Austin
Sun 7 May 2017, 10:00 – 18:00 CDT
Open to Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced students.
This 1-day workshop will take you through the ins and outs of flourishing from a technical, geometric approach to give you the framework to then apply the subtler human curves. We will look at flourishing as a craft on its own, some thing separate from calligraphy and hand-lettering. Looking at the flourishing structure in this way allows for a easing integration with its script-form counterpart. Once the principles are understood we will look at pencils, nibs, and pointed brushes. The end of the day will be spent looking at how to apply what you have learned unto a letter, word or sentence, in a writing instrument of your choice. Please bring unflourished individual letters, words and sentences you would like to tackle at the end of the class. This is a tough day of hard work, you will be lead through technical exercises and complex systems, this is not an easy class.
