The sheer beauty of Off-Hand Flourishing is undeniable. For nearly 200 years, the gracefulness of the flowing curves, subtle and dramatic shades, and the magical patterns that defy description have captivated students into the realm of Ornamental Penmanship. And yet, the truth is that this wondrous style of non-lettering Penmanship is actually far easier to learn than it might appear! The absence of letters in Off-hand Flourishing affords the writer a great deal of freedom in technique and versatility in pattern design. Off-Hand Flourishing has often been described as putting music down on paper, for the flowing lines, curves and shades produce a visual rhythm that soothes the soul!
In this workshop, Master Penman Michael Sull will explain the traditional basic patterns, including cartouches, scrolls, quills, title flourishing, and bird designs. Don’t miss this very special four-hour program; it will be like entering a magic door of Penmanship!
No prior experience necessary.
