  1. Nancy Friend

    An excellent tutorial from Lindsey on how to create an artistic and balanced quote.

    Her detailed instructions taught me techniques to improve my flourishes.

    Lindsey’s DART technique is a great method for learning how to flourish.

    The teaching style is detailed and easy to understand.

  2. Martha Porter

    A great tutorial for Flourishing by Lindsey, the most gracious and encouraging instructor you will ever meet. This is a “do as I do” walk-through with step-by-step instructions. By following her lead, you will learn principles of flourishing, tips and tricks, and pitfalls to avoid. You will practice the art of flourishing without being distracted by the phrase you are learning. (at least, unless you speak Spanish!) Practicing flourishing along with Lindsey has given me confidence and more boldness to flourish my own calligraphy as I apply the principles she has laid out. And as usual, the value of this course far exceeds the price charged! I don’t think you’ll find a tutorial this packed with information that is more affordable! Thank you, Lindsey, for encouraging all of us fledgling calligraphers and cheering us on!

  3. Jenny Meyers

    Another excellent tutorial from Lindsey. In her instruction on the video as well as on the worksheet she offers a detailed explanation of how, when, where , why and what! It is quite a deep dive with much more information than I expected, and lots of positive encouragement along the way. The real value in the course is that Lindsey teaches principles of flourishing, with extra exercises to practice outside of the quote that enables one to feel confident trying to flourish their own quote of choice after practicing on the original. I appreciated the suggestion of a pencil draft AND the eraser😃. It saved me a lot of paper compared to how much I go through in my usual way of starting right in with the pen. My eraser is a bit worn now though!

  4. Inés

    Another course from Lindsey that has brought me so much pleasure! It made the concept of flourishing understandable, enjoyable and practical. Since I took it, I practice creating cards for special occasions and have a very personal gift for my friends. They are delighted and I keep practicing!! 🙂

  5. Susan Roberts

    Every course I have taken from Lindsey has excelled, and this Flourishing one is no exception. I learned so much about pencil drafts and layout. I’ve used the practice/learning template to create several birthday cards for extra special people. Each time I go over it (even tracing with my light board) I understand concepts in fresh ways. I have applied them on my own in simpler cards and can see my progress. Lindsey brings such joy to her teaching style. I look forward to each time I spend with the tutorial videos and worksheets.

  6. Laura Bicherl

    Once again, Lindsey has provided a practical approach to a part of calligraphy that usually has pretty much intimidated me.
    My first go-around with practicing the phrase was (I thought) successful enough to add the inside cover of a small, blank book I am making for an 82-yr-old friend who is learning Spanish. What a lovely coincidence.
    And now I feel I have a method I can apply to practice this and other phrases until I feel comfortable enough with flourishing to start unleashing random flourishes on the world!

  7. Eva Bower

    I have always had trouble with flourishing – what looks good and how to do it. This course makes it all so simple. I particularly like the idea of pencil and paper to draft out the lines first, always with an eraser at hand. My confidence has risen no end! Now, that horrible word “practice”!!! Thank you, Lindsey, for providing yet another practical, useful and valuable resource. I’m very pleased to recommend this course.
