How to Take Your Calligraphy Skills to the Next Level

Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day
with a great teacher

– Japanese Proverb

Like many art forms, calligraphy is a solitary endeavor. 

And that’s what so many of us love about it! 

We can sit in silence, pen in hand, creating something beautiful and new. 

The art of calligraphy is a powerful act of mindfulness  — it keeps us in the here and now so we can focus on little details and flourishes that elevate our writing to true works of art. 

While many of us love the meditative experience of pen work, we also want to see progress in our compositions and become masters of our craft.  This takes more than just practice. It requires the right practice from experienced teachers.

Laura learned this fact the hard way. After years of self-study, she took a course with a true master and her skills improved exponentially.  What had taken years to accomplish on her own took mere days with the help of an expert’s eye to guide her.  

Having experienced the extraordinary benefits of organized calligraphy classes, Laura knew her business would offer training opportunities to fellow calligraphy lovers and aspiring artists.

Twenty-one years later after the start of her business, Laura Hooper Design House continues to help thousands of calligraphers hone their craft through courses, workshops, and tutorials, and people love them —

“I’m LOVING the course! There was so much information in this class. It was well-organized and easy to follow, and even after practicing for five years, I learned so many new techniques. Thanks for everything!” — Cali

Like everything at LHDH, we want our courses to provide elevated experiences celebrating artful living. Every class focuses on tools and techniques to help artists – at every level – reach their personal goals.

“These courses have helped me tremendously in building a practice routine. The courses challenged and motivated me in my calligraphy journey as I could see very clear progression before and after the courses! I love that I can reprint the drills sheets and keep practicing to improve.” — Veron

We’re also happy that LHDH courses can help aspiring entrepreneurs develop the tools they need to grow their own calligraphy businesses.

“I have been practicing lettering for a while now, but I want to improve my pointed pen skills to gain wedding envelope business once I am “comfortable.” Laura and Alyssa make you feel like you are getting a one-on-one experience and give great tips on continuing your practice based on your goals. I highly recommend this course for calligraphers or just for fun!” – Molly

Professional training is essential for measurable improvement and success, whether you’re just starting, working to improve, or dreaming of starting your own calligraphy business.
