Pointed Pen Skills: Decorative Flourishing

A Christmas Flourish (with an Aussie twist)

It’s December! Winter’s closing in, snow is starting to fall, holly surrounds us and … oh wait, that’s not what’s happening here at all!

Join me on a summer December day to learn some traditional Copperplate flourishes, leaves and tiny berries - but with a few extras. I’ve been working on flourishing some native Australian flora to work into my Christmas cards this year, because snowflakes just feel so false when it’s forty degrees outside, and I’m excited to share with you my pointed pen gumnuts and proteas!

We’ll learn some basics of decorative flourishing and how to handle a pointed pen to create leaf shapes, square shapes, and tiny flowers. And we’ll do it all in Christmas colours, because it’s the best time of the year for sparkles (and because learning to handle watercolour and gouache on a pointed pen will open up worlds of possibility for you!)

Each student will receive a kit including:

  • Blank cards to work on

  • A dot card of artist quality gouache colours and a mixing brush

  • Flexible pointed pen nibs to use

  • Handouts and instructions

Please bring your own holder (or borrow one of mine if you forget!) and any of your own tools you prefer to use! It will be an action packed afternoon.

This workshop runs from 2.00pm to 5pm. Please be on time - we have a lot to cover and we won't be able to run late.

Please note: Refunds are not possible - however, if something comes up and you can't attend, you can certainly transfer your enrolment to another person. You will need to negotiate with them directly and advise me of the change. If you can't transfer your membership, you can of course still pick up the supplies and notes and kit - just let me know.

If you have any questions or are a bit unsure, please contact me before you enrol!
