Rachna Takawale

Calligrapher, Engraver & Fine Artist

I love adding a touch of calligraphy to everything I do through hand engraving and painting. My style is modern, whimsical and fresh, with a touch of timeless elegance. What I love about my work is that I get to play with different scripts and surfaces, which doesn't limit my work to just paper. I work with pretty much any surface from glass, acrylic, wood, leaves, metal, ceramics and more.

I am backed with an experience of 13 years (7 years in corporate job and 6 years running my own business). I believe in sharing my experience, my learnings without holding back. Learning is a journey and only through practise can you progress ahead.

I love everything about what I do. I consider myself blessed that I get to create something fun everyday with my hands.

  • Are supplies included in the course fee?
    No, they are not. But the basic supplies that you will need for this course are - a hand engraver (brushless or battery operated), diamond burs, a black brush pen or micron pen, a glass marking pencil, a dusting brush (to clean glass dust), rub n' buff, washi tape, a small pillow, facemask and protective eyewear.
  • How do I know which engraver to buy and from where?
    You can read my detailed blog on which hand engravers are good and where to buy them in India and in the US. Also, we have provided a list of supplies for US, UK and India for which you gain access once you sign up for our course.
  • Can I learn at my own pace?
    Absolutely! Everyone learns differently and might want to revisit what they have learned a couple of times over too. Hence we have created this pre-recorded online course
  • How long do I have access to the course?
    How does lifetime sound? We want you to learn at your own pace and revisit the chapters whenever you feel the need to. And hence we are providing you with a lifetime access.
  • Can I take this course if I don't know calligraphy?
    Yes absolutely. You can learn to engrave with any pretty script. We have also included faux calligraphy worksheets for those who wish to learn how to engrave in calligraphy. We recommend you practise using the sheets with a pencil atleast for 15-20 mins daily.
  • Can I take this course even if I am not based in India?
    Yes!!! That's the reason why we have created this online course, so that you can take it from where ever you are. All you need is a good internet connection.
  • Can those who know engraving still take this course?
    Yes absolutely! There is always so much more to learn. We will be tackling so many different surfaces in this course that will equip you with learnings, to confidently engrave any surface/product. I also share my method of keeping my engraving clear and crisp!
  • Will there be interactive feedback?
    Recognising that each individual faces unique challenges and obstacles while embarking on their learning journey, we offer and additional option to schedule a 30-minute mentorship session with the course. We understand the value of personalised guidance and support to help our learners overcome their specific hurdles and make the most of their learning experience.
  • Do you offer refunds/cancellations?
    Unfortunately not. Due to the amount of research and hardwork we have put in to ensure you the best results, we can't justify going uncompensated for our time and efforts.
