Name: Calligraphy Flourishing 

Description: Calligraphic flourishing is the art of embellishing your writing. If calligraphy is an outfit, flourishing are the accessories. In this short calligraphy workshop, we will study pointed pen flourishing from the 17th century to present. Through flourishing, we will improve our pen control, increase the fluidity of our writing, and encourage our creativity. Some knowledge of the pointed pen will be helpful.

Cost: $125
