I have just finished Laura's Brush Pen Calligraphy Course (parts 1 and 2) and I cannot recommend the course highly enough. The sheets are very well laid out and the accomanying videos are brilliant. Laura has such a clear and friendly teaching style, and I really loved the content of the course. I now feel much more confident creating cards and gifts for friends and family. The course is such good value for money, and I won't hesitate to sign up for any future courses that Laura may offer.

Thank you very much for your kind words, Jennifer!

 Why Laura Prudence Calligraphy?

I have studied under some of the U.K.’s leading calligraphers. This expert teaching has allowed me to hone a unique calligraphic style, filled with flourishing elegance. I specialise in both modern calligraphy and the harder to master techniques of this beautiful and expressive art form, classic copperplate and flourished copperplate. I have a background in education; as a result I have a calm and understanding nature, essential when teaching. Additionally, my previous teaching experience helps me to interpret the needs of my students when teaching calligraphy.

'Sharing the calligraphy love' is the passion that drives my business. You can see this in the stylish calligraphy in my online shop, and I have adored sharing the calligraphy love with many students. I have created online modern brush pen calligraphy courses which whilst being very easy to follow, are full of videos and materials to support the calligraphy learner. Please feel free to sign up to my newsletter to receive all the latest news! The form is just below.

In an age when we are increasingly reliant on computer technology, calligraphy is an art that reminds us of the elegance and beauty that we can achieve by hand. I teach workshops, have very popular prerecorded online courses, templates and other 'learn calligraphy' materials in my shop, all created from my base in Chichester, West Sussex.

Leanne: You can take the course at your own pace, reviewing the videos if needed and pausing to practise.

Laura: The course content was great, the videos and worksheets are so easy and clear to follow and it's great to be able to go back to them when I am practising. I have loved completing the course and highly recommend it.
