Flourished Envelope Art!

 This workshop is all about envelopes as art! Add some WOW factor to your addressing with beautiful design! From traditional to trendy to funky and fun, you will be guided through the process of creating envelopes that POP!

You’ll learn a variety of design techniques, how to integrate flourishing with lettering, painted florals, drawn and embellished letters, along with decoration and ornamentation ideas, using both a pointed pen and paintbrush. 

We will also explore composition: lettering and design placement according to US Postal Service guidelines, writing on a curve, dealing with dark and lined papers, and writing to scale. This workshop will teach you valuable tips for creating unique designs using your own style!

Please note: This is not a letterforms class. A basic knowledge of calligraphy is necessary to fully benefit from this workshop.

Please note: There is a $5 materials fee for envelopes provided by the instruction, which will be collected at the start of class.
