Students say about working with Robert

“The Flourish seminar was of great value for the number of sessions Robert has compiled together. We were provided with detailed workbooks for each session in addition to a master workbook for flourishing. This is a great combination of classes and there is something for everyone. Robert’s teaching style is very detailed and he took his time to resolve each of our queries during sessions. The feedback provided on homework was elaborated which is what I needed exactly to understand where to improve. I would definitely recommend this class for anyone who wants to seriously study flourishing to increase their knowledge or just for fun.” Apoorva Wright, Calligrapher

“The opportunity to meet Robert, absorb his knowledge, watch him draw, get feedback from him and connect with like-minded classmates, is something I can’t recommend enough. His impact on my work is clear as day and I’m thankful for that.” Daniel Ribeiro – Lettering, Calligraphy and Design

I recommend every flourishing enthusiastic to take courses with Robert and here is why? He is open minded, instructions are really really easy to understand. Worksheets given before every class helped me a lot to understand every topic properly. Robert provides feedback as well after every class which is again really helpful to correct mistakes. Someone who is serious about taking their calligraphy/lettering skills to the next level, make the right investment by taking this course” Mohita – starastronaut calligraphy

“Robert Bree’s Flourish Seminar is excellent, and I highly recommend it.
I liked the Seminar format, mainly because of the weekly assignments and the possibility of rewatching the classes. Robert is a kind and dedicated teacher; his feedback was always constructive and helpful. I learned a lot.” 
Maria – Calligrapher

My workshop and approach to flourishes is called often „unique“. I describe it „simple“, because I like to break down any decision when it comes to flourishes to make it easy and transparent.

A good course with profound knowledge can save you a lot of time. Regarding the time you need to spend don‘t worry about the quantity because when you start slowly and keep doing it, you will automatically change the time you invest in your craft. Consistency is key, not quantity.

What you learn today, will put you in a different position some day in the future to be able to learn something different again.
