Need a hand… literally?

Hey! I’m Emma, the creative human behind Black Chalk Collective and Penultimate Magazine. I’m obsessed with all things brush lettering, watercolour, calligraphy and business. Whether you want to learn how to wrangle a pen or brush, have a bespoke piece of lettering created for that special someone (and yes, you count as a special someone too), or kick-start your creative business, I’m your man!

Here at Black Chalk Collective we are all about creating, educating and collaborating – but most of all, having fun!
