This beginners kit has been curated by Gemma and contains everything you need to get started with modern calligraphy. Based on her 1-2-1 workshops, Gemma has put together a comprehensive workbook, suitable for complete beginners and those wishing to brush up on their skills.
This kit includes:
A premium, adjustable dual-purpose pen holder, designed and made by the awesome Chris of Yoke Pen Co., which can be used as both an oblique and straight pen. This is by far the best pen on the market at this price point, and features a smooth, matt body for extra grip, and a solid-brass adjustable flange to suit your writing style and hold almost any kind of nib.
A 14-page modern calligraphy workbook
Two nibs - Nikko G and Gillott 303.
40 page practice booklet, with tear-out guidelines and perforated pages. Smooth blank white bleed-proof paper, thin enough to place your guidelines underneath and perfect for practicing
A 30ml bottle of Tom's Studio black acrylic ink.
Gold-foiled pencil, for practicing your letterforms.
A4 guideline sheet.
The workbook will introduce you to modern calligraphy, as well as giving you a short background to the art and its origins. It will then explain how to set up your space and hold your pen correctly, before moving on to basic strokes and the upper and lowercase alphabet. It will also take you through common mistakes, and once you've got the hang of it, there are examples for you to copy and practice so you can begin to construct your own phrases and develop your own style. Written by Gemma Milly, a full-time calligrapher and teacher of Modern Calligraphy.
Everything is presented in a luxury white box with rose gold foiled logo. Perfect as a gift or for budding calligraphers wanting a professional kit to get started with.
Box size: 32cm x 22cm x 4cm
