We met at a little school in Yorkshire and shared an infant class for many years. Due to Jools’ Graphic Design background our wall displays were the envy of many! But what we really bonded over was a passion for teaching beautiful hand lettering. Children loved their lessons, particularly ‘Pencil Aerobics’ to warm up their fingers for writing!

Calligraphy Harrogate came a few years later when we began to notice a trend for gorgeous, decorative lettering on social media - this contemporary lettering felt like a breath of fresh air and we wanted to know more!

After trying various workshops, we decided we wanted to teach ourselves. We were hooked, it’s as fun and addictive to produce as it looks! Now to turn our passion into a business so we could share this craft with others. Our firm belief is that everyone should take some time out to find their creative side, learning how to produce some hand lettered loveliness and explore the connection between design and words.

Jools is the creative, with a keen eye for every detail and a deep understanding of how to turn the simplest words into works of art. Helen is the planner and proof positive that you don’t have to be artistic to learn modern calligraphy!

The fact that we are both experienced teachers with over 37 years between us means we know how to properly plan and design a well-structured workshop or online teaching resource that’s fun and interesting. Our students fully understand the basics and are then supported and challenged to achieve great results for themselves.

Plus, we discovered that this new art also has great wellness benefits! Creating lovely letters helps to screen out anxiety and worry because it requires some focus and concentration. It feeds the soul, slows the heart rate and focuses our breathing. What’s not to love!
