About Me

Hello! I'm Jane

Hand Calligrapher & Lettering Instructor

 

Hi. My name is Jane Lappage. Living in Leicestershire, I have been studying calligraphy since 2005…

Since then, I’ve been producing various artworks and calligraphic pieces, among which was a yearly calendar that was created during my evening classes that I gave out to friends and family at Christmas time as stocking fillers. In Christmas 2010, however, our class decided to do a new project which meant I would need another handmade gift that everyone would love and enjoy as much as the calendar. I had an idea – as I had already drawn a cat created from words and phrases – why not use this design for packs of notelets?

So, many cards, envelopes and cellophane bags later, I decided to try some new designs that would be great for many other people to enjoy as well.

My husband, Nick, and I created Calligraphy Arts and now produce and sell calligraphy dip pens and bespoke artwork. Check out our unique greeting cards. They have designs encompassing Cats, Dogs, Doves, Paws and Hearts, Eternal and Celtic Love Knots. The more rock inspired among you may be interested in Guitars, Choppers, Motorcycles, Ace of Spades and Skull & Crossbones. We even have campervans, cars and steam engines! There are many more ideas coming here soon.

Being in the rural heart of England, I have now shared my calligraphy services with many people and companies throughout the UK. From Leicester to Loughborough, Nottingham to Northampton, East Midlands or West Midlands, North or South, local or not so local… in fact internationally too. You can be sure I aim to provide you with one of the best calligraphic experiences that I can.

Here’s a small list of works I have produced so far.

  • Wedding Invitations
  • Place cards
  • Gift tags
  • Unique Greeting Cards
  • Bespoke Artwork
  • Leaving or Retirement Presentations
  • Long Service Awards
  • Certificates
  • Poems and Quotations
  • Visitor Book for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee visit to Leicester (I simply can’t leave that one out)
  • Haddon Hall Christmas card
  • I have worked with the Brownies and Girl Guides organisations serving as an introduction to calligraphy as well as school classes and Women’s Institute meetings.

There’s a gallery of photographs that show, in greater detail, the type of great quality calligraphy work that you can expect from me.

So, if you want something truly special, then contact me.
My aim is to be your National Calligrapher of Choice in the UK.

Why not visit our Online Shop to see what we have on offer. There’s a terrific selection of Italian Calligraphy dip pens, wax seals and accessories. The full range of Coliro inks (by Finetec) is available – they are just superb to work with. You can also find a wide range of calligram cards as well as sayings and quotations.

Please keep in touch – just click the button below, enter your details, and I’ll send you an email every now and then. Then you will know when new products have arrived or when I have information about calligraphy classes, workshops and other great events.

Many thanks for visiting and don’t forget to return soon as there’s always something new to find.

Warmest wishes,

Jane xxx
