Laura Hooper Calligraphy Workshop

Sunday I attended the Laura Hooper Calligraphy Workshop, something that's been on my todo list for all of 2014.  It took place in a lovely space in SOHO, Lofts on Prince and was taught by the super-talented calligraphy artist, Laura Hooper, and her sister.  The class was three hours long, we learned all the basics from how to hold the pen, to the best paper to use and then went through the copperplate alphabet.  Now, you probably could find this information out there online, but it was great to have all the supplies gathered for you, a block of time to practice, which I never would have given myself, and most importantly one-on-one time with the experts to ask questions and show you just how the heck to write a capital E.
