Spring 2019 Workshop: “Dive into Flourishing” with Flo Wilkins
Date: March 16, 2019
Time: 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Location: Trinity Baptist Church, Renton, WA
Flourishes make beautiful enhancements to pointed pen lettering. Creating these elegant lines smoothly and tastefully can be a pointed pen nightmare. Spend the day with Flo reviewing the basics of Copperplate capitals and the qualities of great letters.
We will explore the basic components of flourishes, the structure of loops, circles, spirals and more. Practice building on skills you already possess. Then learn practice routines that will help you to improve your skills and ability to create flourishes with confidence and spontaneity.
Flo has taught many workshops on several scripts, though pointed pen is her favorite. She has also attended many local and international conferences. Flo is a former high school teacher.
