Introduction to Flourishing the Lower Case Alphabet

Introduction to Flourishing the Lower Case Alphabet


Prerequisite: Beginner's Calligraphy workshop

Date: (SOLD OUT!) Tuesday, February 12

Time: 6:00-8:30 pm

Designed for those who are familiar with pointed pen calligraphy and want to explore simple flourishing of lower case letters in a small class setting. Worksheets with various flourishing options for each letter of the lower case alphabet will be provided for you to practice.  Participants should bring a short phrase or quote to letter during the class.  After we have practiced flourishing, we will go over sketching a draft layout and designing flourishes to (time permitting) create a finished piece. Bring your favorite nib(s), ink(s)s, graph paper, and Canson Pro Marker or Borden and Riley Cotton Comp paper to work with. (See below for links to purchase) 

Light snacks will be provided. BYOB. The exact address will be emailed to you with your confirmation. The location is the Historic Dilworth neighborhood in Charlotte, NC, about 5-10 minutes from the downtown area.
