Modern Calligraphy letters

If you’re finding yourself nodding along to all this, you’re not alone…

There is a reason Modern Calligraphy is gaining in popularity. The mental health advantages of calligraphy are well-known, and as awareness of self-care grows, it's no surprise that modern calligraphy has become increasingly popular. However, teaching yourself can sometimes lead to doubts, especially when your lettering isn’t quite as perfect as you hoped. I’ve been there—diving right into the alphabet without guidelines, ending up with inconsistent shapes... This was my first attempt so you are definitely not alone!

But your experience can be different! By learning modern calligraphy through a structured and methodical approach, you can quickly see your skills develop and enjoy the process of your artistic growth.

Which is why I’m soooo excited to introduce:

Still on the fence about it?

Let's see what previous calligraphy students have said...

"I completed Jane's Modern Calligraphy course online, just after getting engaged - I am always on the look out for ways to DIY and was really intrigued to incorporate calligraphy into my wedding.

Jane was engaging from the start and made a remote group of strangers feel like best friends. The worksheets were stunning and of such a fab quality - you could tell Jane has put her heart into her passion and was always on hand for support and helpful feedback.

I took any opportunity to practise my learned calligraphy skills - which built my confidence in other lettering (even physical!) - and was so excited to use them as part of my wedding stationery and signage. There is no better feeling than being able to respond, 'Thanks, I made it!'.

Jane was always cheering us on and always around for advice and support (or just a chat!) long after the course ended."

Why Should you believe me?

Because I've

been there!

I was once exactly like you. I was desperately looking for the right creative outlet, to help calm my nervous system while working in a dreadfully stressful job!

I had a lightbulb moment when I discovered modern calligraphy... WOW this is THE HOBBY for me! But it didn't take long to realise I wasn't getting anywhere with the free YouTube videos where they made it look so easy. I just couldn't do it alone. Taking a proper course with support allowed me to feel good about my progress. In very little time, modern calligraphy became my lifeline when all around me was crumbling. Every day I look forward to the evening when I could get the pen back in my hand.

3 1/2 years on and I have left that stressful job (I was a secondary teacher) and enjoy helping more and more people to fall in love with calligraphy. I am 100% invested in your journey because I want you to feel the joy just like I do!

Can I join the course if I have messy handwriting?

The good news is that Modern Calligraphy and handwriting are NOT linked! It's perfectly possible to have messy handwriting AND beautiful calligraphy (I am a perfect example of this!).
