Starting its life as a small market stall in Havelock North; Panoply Studio has grown to be a full time lettering studio located in the Hawke’s Bay.

Rebecca, Panoply’s letter loving creator, loves the use of old machinery and equipment, bringing this old tech back to the new age,¬†creating pieces with all the love, attention to detail, and true craftsmanship found a-plenty in times past.

With a drive for sustainable & reusable offerings, Panoply Studio has collected and carefully considered pieces to offer for your wedding or event.

Where pieces have are requested to be specially customised outside of our scope, we support quality local craftspeople to get the best finish, and to reduce our carbon footprint.

Rebecca is always working on something, and is hoping to launch a new incentive for your paper goods very soon…watch this space.

Rebecca Norman, is the artist and sole creator behind Panoply Studio.

Having learnt the basics of calligraphy from her grandfather as a child, Rebecca always held an interest and ability for art and lettering.

Panoply Studio was created as a way to share her creativity and love of lettering and paper goods.

When she is not ‘ink slinging’ , Rebecca spends time with her husband, two children and poodles, enjoying a good coffee and dining out in the Hawke’s Bay and the many adventures it has to offer.
