Thanks for stopping by! My name is Rachel, I am the face and handwriting behind RKM Calligraphy. I am based in Cheltenham and work from home where I have my own calligraphy space.
My calligraphy obsession began in 2018 with the aim of writing personalised envelopes, place cards and signs for my own wedding in 2019. Since then, I haven't been able to put the pen down.
Specialising in modern calligraphy, I enjoy creating beautiful words for all occasions; weddings, corporate events, Christmas, christenings, funerals, birthdays, parties and more.
I love how diverse calligraphy is as you can write on any material. In my spare time, I enjoy experimenting with all sorts of materials to see what works - I love a challenge!
I am a believer in up-cycling and where there is opportunity to make something out of left over material, I definitely take it. This allows me to create 'limited edition' products. You can find my up-cycling projects on my Portfolio page.
A little bit about me outside of the calligraphy world; I play the violin in rock/indie cover band Hear the Spheres, I teach violin and piano (Cheltenham Violin Teacher), you can easily bribe me with food, I love whiskey, I work in the sales and marketing world by day, my husband and I have two tortoises - Daisy & Harley. When I'm not running around, you can find me on the sofa working my way through a glass of red, takeaway and Netflix series!
