As lace on fabric, flourishes can add life and the ‘finishing touch” to hand-lettering. Their beauty lies in their free, effortless grace.

In this course, you will learn that underneath the casual look of these strokes lies strong form. We will examine, step by step, the formation of these shapes, as well as their appropriate placement in a letter.
