Our Beginner Modern Pointed-Pen Calligraphy Workshops will provide you with high-quality tools for the art, but more importantly teach you how to use them, cover basics in practice strokes and technique, as well as cover a full alphabet.

If you are just starting out or are looking for hands-on tips and techniques to improve your beginner’s hand, these workshops are for you. Left-handed? No problem. We provide a pen holder custom made for left-handed learners and have taught hundreds of lefties in our workshops over the past few years. Every individual’s skill level varies, regardless of which hand they use to write! LEARN MORE & REGISTER BELOW.


Our Beyond Beginner Calligraphy Workshop is designed for those with experience in pointed pen who are ready to to take their work beyond beginner. We will focus on letter consistency, followed by letter connections – providing a foundation for continued practice with the art. We will also touch on flourishing and share two flourished alphabets. LEARN MORE & REGISTER BELOW.

** If you are not able to join us at one of the workshops below, we hope you will consider our Calligraphy for Beginners Starter Kit + Video and Beyond Beginner Calligraphy Workbook + Video.**


While we wish we could teach in every city, we unfortunately are not able to with our current workload, upcoming projects & preserving some weekends off to spend with our families and friends. We have chosen to scale back on the number of workshops offered in 2017 and therefore do expect that they may sell out early. We would love to share the art of modern calligraphy with you & recommend signing up as soon as you know you would like to join us! To be notified if we are able to add workshops in Florida, please click here.

Here’s what attendees are saying!

Thank you for an amazing workshop today. It was wonderful meeting y’all in person. I’ve been wanting to dive into calligraphy for so long, and your workshop helped me address some of the main issues I’ve had in my first attempts. (Quality material being the main issue.) Thank you for offering a course like this and for hosting them in such lovely locations with such beautiful decorations. Though I didn’t tell you at the time, I want to let you know how much your work inspires so many people. – Julie

I’ve always been interested in pointed pen and finally took the plunge 2 summers ago. I enrolled in Laura’s Beginner Workshop in Toronto and had to drive 4 and a half hours to get there. Not only was the course worth the drive but Alyssa & Laura are incredibly detailed and patient with their students and you can see the passion they have in their work. May we continue to do what we love and inspire each other. – Melissa L

After following Laura Hooper Calligraphy on Instagram I finally had the opportunity to attend her workshop for beginners in Alexandria, VA. It was an amazing experience and Laura and her sister, Alyssa made the 3 hours well worth the expense. I am so excited to continue on my calligraphy journey and hope through solid practice I will progress in the art! Thanks for providing this service!!! – Sheila I.
