Modern Calligraphy: Flourish Confidently
What you'll learn

- Practice 150+ flourishes

- Already have working knowledge of modern calligraphy basics
Have you ever wondered how to achieve such natural, organic flourishes in your calligraphy? There are a lot of thoughts out there about how to do flourishes, but none of them really show you where to place them and how to strategically think through them. While there is an element of personal style and flair that goes into flourishes, there are some general rules that you can follow and practice so that you can start to launch your own flourishing style.
In this class...
We'll identify seven different locations where flourishes can be added
We'll look at 25 variations of flourishes by using and building on basic shapes
Practice flourishes within a composition with words and short phrases
You'll also get free downloads such as guidelines, worksheets, and assignments to help you out.
This class is geared towards the calligrapher who already has basic knowledge on how to write the lowercase and uppercase alphabets (I'm coming out with a class on this soon!).
You don't need any fancy tools. Just a pencil, eraser, and my worksheets to get you started.
Let’s begin this journey on flourishing confidently together. I’ll see you in class.
Please note that I rebranded my business in April 2020 from Things Unseen Designs to Audrey Ra Design. Videos and older content may still reflect the old brand.

- Modern calligraphers who want to learn how to add flourishes
I’m Audrey, owner of and creative behind Audrey Ra Design (formerly Things Unseen Designs). I believe that everyone is creative. My mission is to spark the creativity in all of us.
I come from a family with creative roots. Both of my paternal grandparents were painters, my grandmother specifically with watercolors. My parents have a fondness for music and the arts. Growing up, I played classical piano, attended choir, and frequented museums.
When my grandmother passed away in May 2016, I wanted to honor her memory by bringing back the creative side in me. It started with the bullet journal (because I’m also obsessed with planners and being organized), then calligraphy, and then watercoloring. By the end of 2016, I wanted to continue on in this journey. And what you see now is the result of it.
I hope to connect with you in my classes!
Thank you, and let's make the world a more beautiful place!
