A one or two day workshop with Denis Brown

Flourishes are perhaps where calligraphy is at its most calligraphic.
The spontaneous ejection from a letter stroke, accelerating into a freely
written flourish, is a joy to perform and behold. We will look at simple
flourishes and italic swash capitals, howevrer not merely as decorations but using vigorous dynamic
strokes and the one-shot let it fly approach.

sheet or two of better quality paper of your own preferred brand.
