Flourishing Fundamentals

An online program that teaches our strategies for constructing flourishes and how to thoughtfully plan out beautiful, balanced layouts

Do any of these sound familiar?

I'm unsure how to start flourishing. You don't know what shapes to make or where to use them, and not knowing where to start prevents you from even trying. You're afraid you'll mess up, and you struggle to even start.

I need rules to follow. You learn best by practicing specific drills and shapes and understanding the thought process behind them. Flourishing looks complicated, and you need it broken down into step-by-step directions.

I feel lost or overwhelmed. You admire the work of other artists, and wonder "how do they make it look so easy??" The flourishes you've attempted look awkward or out of place, and they just don't "flow". Once you get something down on paper, you don't know how to improve what you have.

I get frustrated when creating layouts. You struggle to incorporate flourishing into balanced layouts, and you're unsure what is too much or too little.

Imagine if you could...

Loosen up and get out of your own way. Say goodbye to feeling stuck!

Easily pull from your 'toolbox' of over 150 flourishes at any time. No more trying to come up with shapes out of thin air.

Feel confident in your ability to embellish your letters and words in the best places.

Thoughtfully plan out beautiful, balanced layouts ranging from simple to complex.

Guess what? You can achieve all of this in our course: Flourishing Fundamentals.

Discover ALL the strategies we've learned from 3 years of flourishing -- strategies that will accelerate your lettering progress.

And the best part? We’ll show you how to break down this seemingly complex and mystifying technique into easy-to-follow, logical steps that will get you flourishing in only 6 weeks – a FRACTION of the time it would take to figure it out on your own.

I can not say enough about these two young ladies sharing so much insight on flourishing and making it a fun trip all along the way. Do not hesitate to take this class. It will open up new worlds for you."

Let me take you back to what my lettering was like before I discovered how to flourish the right way.

I was FRUSTRATED. At the time, I was learning how to improve my lettering skills, but flourishing did NOT come easily. I had no idea what the rules were, or even how to make the basic shapes.

No matter how hard I tried, they ended up looking like random swirls and squiggles with an occasional “lucky” one that turned out well.

I continued experimenting, filling pages and pages of slow improvement. I spent HOURS watching those amazing calligraphers write and studying their pieces to figure out the underlying rules.

My Light Bulb Moment

After hours of analysis, I discovered that all flourishes are made up of just a couple basic shapes put together in different combinations. It suddenly made so much sense! Now instead of looking at the stokes wondering how I could possibly come up with that on my own, I easily recognized the patterns that I could then practice and incorporate into my work.

So, if flourishing is so simple at the basic level, why isn’t EVERYONE teaching or learning it this way?

The reason is because…

Most people are too overwhelmed or frustrated to realize it can be broken down into simple steps.

"The best thing for me, of all the excellent goodies in this course, is that I now understand how flourishes are structured, so I'm confident I can create my own without having to copy someone else's shapes. Thank you!"

Flourishing Fundamentals starts with the very basics to lay a solid foundation, and slowly builds on your skills.

You will not only learn dozens (and dozens) of ways to flourish your lettering, you will also learn the WHY behind the flourishes and how to build them instead of trying to copy random flourishes or remember what you traced.

Once you learn the strategies for flourishing, you will wonder why it ever seemed so daunting in the first place!

I learned a lot in this class and my calligraphy looks so much better and it is nice to have options on how flourish and layout a piece your working on.

The class is worth the investment in time and money."

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Who is the course for?
This course is perfect if you... understand the basics of lettering and you're ready to add embellishments; don't know where to start and need rules to follow; have tried flourishing before without much success; or want to expand your "toolbox" of flourishing options.
What does this course include?
Over 5 hours of Video lessons, accompanying Workbooks & Homework, and a student-only Facebook group with direct access to your instructors.
What pen should I use?
We suggest going through the course with pencil. Practice the shapes of flourishing and develop your muscle memory, and then apply it to your tool of choice (pointed pen, brush pen, etc.) once you're comfortable with it. That way, you'll be focusing on just the technique and not worrying about the tool—it can be frustrating to practice both at the same time! Note: the majority of the course is taught in pencil, and some of the videos show a Pentel Sign brush pen.

"Anyone committing to this class can expect rewarding results. You will NOT be disappointed."
