OCTOBER 13TH: Flourishing: The Art of the Oval with Suzanne Cunningham
October 13th • 9 am - 12 pm
Skill level: intermediate
You’ve learned the basics and know your letterforms. Now learn how to make them even more beautiful with flourishes! But here comes the kicker: How do I do that? Do I flourish every letter? Do I make small, tight flourishes or big, loose ones? When do I stop? Help! No worries, we will cover all of that! In this class, you will learn how to flourish off of the individual letter by extending ascenders and descenders, entrance and exit strokes, and how to balance all of that on envelopes and larger pieces. You will learn the steps to make a graceful oval, how to critique our work, and exactly what to look for when you break it down. This class will help you see flourishes in a totally different way!
This workshop includes all supplies and entrance to CalligraFair for both days.
Class is limited to 30 students.
Suzanne is a renowned calligrapher who lives and works in Florence, Alabama.
Workshops take place at Smitten on Paper's studio
114 E Lemon Avenue Monrovia, California 91016
