Molly can help.

MJW is online education for calligraphy and lettering. All of the education is hosted here online in the form of e-courses, creative and legal resources, community forums, and personal mentorship.

The MJW community believes that true learning doesn’t come from simply transferring a tutorial video from one computer to another. The ideal learning environment is one of encouragement, accountability, and community. The best education is taught by highly skilled and experienced instructors with a desire to uphold industry standards and an appreciation for student/teacher mentorship.





The Molly Jacques Workshop e-courses are focused on calligraphy, lettering, and creative freelancing. Classes include video lessons along with downloadable assets and helpful guides. Students may submit their preliminary and finalized work to the user gallery within each course. This is where you’ll receive feedback on your projects from Molly and other instructors.mjw_success

mjw_success“…Taking Molly’s workshop was nothing short of life-changing. She celebrates breaking the traditional rules of calligraphy and lettering and finding a style that is all your own. With the education and support I’ve received from Molly’s classes, I left my full-time job located in a cubicle and launched my own company, knowing that my lettering was what set me apart from others in my field. I’m here because of Molly’s remarkable abilities as an artist, a leader, and an educator. She’s the Gandalf to my Frodo.”

mjw_successmjw_success“I worked with Molly to fine-tune the “quirks” that made my work unique. Her insight helped me be more intentional about my signature style and helped me differentiate my work from other artists’. … At the end of the day, we aren’t just calligraphers, designers, illustrators, painters, etc. We are business people and we each serve unique, specified corners of a sprawling, wide market. I loved being able to open my eyes to new perspectives and information through Molly’s class…”

AlanaYarbrough_memjw_successmjw_success“…Molly Jacques’ talent is known across the professional channels, from Nike to Tiffany’s, the Wall Street Journal to the New York Times, Google to top advertising agencies, yet she is so down-to-earth and friendly as a teacher! Not only does she provide the resources for you to take home to reference, she takes the time to work with you one-on-one to make sure you understand. Molly’s commitment to authenticity, quality, and integrity in the creative community is unparalleled. I highly recommend Molly Jacques Workshop, I can honestly say they so totally rock!”
