Calligraphic Flourishing

Learn flourishes, the most gorgeous accessory to your calligraphy

If you're at all familiar with our work at Design House of Moira, you know we love pointed pen calligraphy. Even more, you know we love flourishes on our calligraphy. Flourishes in the right place can bring emphasis to certain words, bring balance to a piece, add artistic style, and change the overall feel of whatever you are calligraphing.

Whether your finished calligraphy will be used for the names on an invitation or a calligraphed envelope address, wedding vows or a monogram, mastering the art of flourishing will elevate your calligraphy and help you create a more polished final piece.

In this course, we will cover common styles of flourishing, common mistakes, how to build muscle memory, visually balance your flourish placement, and finish with examples of how you can apply flourishes to multi-line pieces.

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
Prep school is designed to allow you to design your own curriculum so you can work at your own pace. Every semester we release successive courses to help you move your creative business forward.

With that in mind, courses are released at the beginning of every Fall or Spring semester, but you can register, start and finish any released course at your own pace.

During the launch semester for each set of new classes, we will be offering extra perks to students who not only sign up during launch but complete their coursework within that semester.
How long do I have access to the course?
All Prep School courses are available for lifetime access! We understand that life happens and you may not always be in a place to take full advantage of a course when you first sign up. Work through your class on the first day, come back months later for a refresher... either way, all class materials will be here for you.

In addition, once you register for a course, you'll have access to the private Facebook group and school-wide live streams!
Is this course eligible for launch semester perks?
Yes! This course is brand new for Semester IV and because of that, we will be offering some awesome perks to students who complete the entire course by May 15, 2018.
Why do these perks exist?
Here at Prep School, we really believe in not just taking the money to invest in ourselves and our businesses, but also taking the time to follow through on a monetary investment and actually take the classes we purchase.

With this in mind, we offer some super awesome perks for students who complete their coursework in a timely manner. If something happens and you can’t quite swing finishing the lessons within the time frame of the semester, no worries, you’ll still get access to the awesome courses, the Facebook group, and school-wide live streams.

Sweet.

However! Students who complete their courses by May 15, two months into the semester, will get some perks.
What are these "launch semester perks" you mentioned?
No. 1 - Our eyes on your work -

Anyone who posts theirs on our private Facebook group during the semester will get direct feedback and support from the DHPS team.

No. 2 - Special access -

Students who have completed their courses in time will get to participate in a Live Q&A session just for them! Less students in the Q&A means more time to go in-depth into your questions and issues with specific examples so we can really work through and try to find solutions. Prior to the Q&A, you’ll get the chance to send in your specific questions to make sure we answer everything for you!

You might ask, how is this different from our regular school-wide live sessions? We like to use those as a chance to make announcements, discuss the school, and get to hang out with you, our awesome students! In comparison, these sessions will focus on problem-solving and us being there to help you specifically.

No. 3 - Even special-er access! -

Finally, finishing your classes by May 15 will automatically enter you into a random drawing for a 45 minute one-on-one mentor session with Victoria to ask or discuss anything you would like. Seriously, anything! Two lucky students will be chosen at random, and we’ll get the mentoring on the books for January.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 10 days and we will give you a full refund.
