Hi, I'm Jane...

...an award-winning modern calligraphy and engraving artist based in rural Oxfordshire.

I offer modern calligraphy classes both in-person and online. My passion for calligraphy and its wellbeing benefits mean that my workshops and courses provide an excellent opportunity to unwind while trying something new at the same time. My creative coaching workshops are a perfect for corporate teams to develop outside-the-box thinking.

I also work with both private and corporate clients to create stunning, personalised pieces for a range of occasions. From brand activation and PR events to corporate gifting and live calligraphy and engraving at private celebrations,

Get in touch today to discuss how I can help elevate your next project or event with my modern calligraphy and engraving services.

The Oxford Calligrapher is a Small Business Sunday Winner!

I'm delighted to announce that The Oxford Calligrapher has won the coveted award of Small Business Sunday Winner. I was recently presented with my certificate by former Dragon, retail entrepreneur and #SBS founder, Theo Paphitis.

The Oxford Calligrapher is now one of 4500 small businesses that Theo has personally chosen to be part of his community since 2010. He chooses 6 winners every Monday who have pitched their business on a Sunday evening Bia Instagram or X (Formerly Twitter). I was lucky enough to become a winner on my first pitch, where for many it takes a number of attempts to be chosen! It's a real honour to be recognised for the passion and hard work I put into bringing calligraphy joy to as many people as I can.

Embarking on a calligraphy business journey is an exciting endeavour, and finding your niche can set the stage for success. As a modern calligrapher, the possibilities are vast, and your unique style can be the key to unlocking various markets. Here are some specialised avenues to consider for your modern calligraphy business:

1. In-Store Engraving:

Offer in-store engraving services for customers looking to add a personalized touch to their purchases. Collaborate with local businesses to create bespoke, on-the-spot calligraphy on items like glassware, leather goods, or metal.

2. Wedding Stationery:

Dive into the enchanting world of weddings by specialising in crafting elegant and personalised wedding stationery. From invitations and save-the-dates to place cards and vows, your modern calligraphy can add a sophisticated and romantic flair to the big day.

3. Calligraphy Commissions:

Open your doors to bespoke calligraphy commissions. Cater to clients seeking custom pieces for special occasions, personalised gifts, or unique artwork. Your ability to bring their visions to life through your modern calligraphy can make each piece a cherished masterpiece.

4. Signage for Events and Businesses:

Become the go-to calligrapher for event signage and business displays. Your modern calligraphy can elevate the visual appeal of storefronts, menu boards, and event signage, providing a touch of sophistication that sets businesses apart.

5. Social Media Content Creation:

Leverage your modern calligraphy skills to create eye-catching content for social media platforms. Offer services to businesses looking to enhance their online presence with visually appealing graphics, quotes, or promotional materials.

6. Branding and Logo Design:

Collaborate with businesses for custom branding and logo designs. Your modern calligraphy can give their brand a distinctive and memorable identity, creating a visual representation that stands out in the market.

7. Interactive Workshops and Classes:

Share your passion and expertise by hosting modern calligraphy workshops and classes. Whether in-person or online, teaching others the art of modern calligraphy can become a rewarding aspect of your business.

8. Home Decor and Wall Art:

Specialize in creating modern calligraphy pieces for home decor. Design personalised quotes, family names, or abstract artwork that customers can display proudly in their homes.

9. Collaborate with Photographers:

Partner with photographers to offer calligraphy services for photo shoots. This could include creating personalised props, signage, or even adding calligraphic elements to printed photographs.

10. Event Calligraphy Services:

Extend your services to on-site event calligraphy. Attend events such as art fairs, markets, or corporate functions, offering attendees the chance to experience live calligraphy and walk away with personalised pieces.

Remember, finding your niche is a journey of exploration. By focusing on what you love and aligning it with market demand, you can build a modern calligraphy business that not only showcases your unique talent but also satisfies the diverse needs of your clientele. Embrace the beauty of modern calligraphy and let it flourish in the specialised avenues you choose to explore.
