From my students

They say that teaching is caring. I believe in the importance of sharing my passion and knowledge to keep the signwriting craft and calligraphy alive.

We learned so much and in great detail. It was fun, and we were all made to feel so comfortable from the outset. Joha was just great, so helpful, so talented and just a lovely person. I would highly recommend a workshop with her

An amazing 2-day signwriting workshop taught by super talented Joha. She went into great detail explaining the process. Would highly recommend taking one of her classes!!

Zipporah Reynolds

I attended Joha's 'Introduction to sign painting course' and it was loads of fun! She is a fountain of knowledge, very happy to help and answer questions and explained everything really well. Plus her painting skills are amazing to watch. We all had a fab 2 days, it was class to see how much we improved in that time. Couldn't recommend enough!
