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

    Pack of 3 Rainbow Pencils

    Fellow UK based designer maker Duncan Shotton designed these amazing pencils.  Initially launching them on kickstarter the project was backed by 2,864 people! And you can see why, they must be the most uplifting pencils ever designed.  I challenge you not to be in a good mood after using one.

    Here's what Duncan has to say about them:

    "Made from recycled paper, rainbow pencils let you create beautiful paper rainbows when you sharpen them.

    Rainbow Pencils function like regular wooden pencils, and are the same size and weight, but they’re not made from wood, they’re made from lots of layers of recycled waste paper. So the shavings / sharpenings look like rainbows."

     

    Making Rainbows
    You don’t need a special sharpener to make rainbows, but a sharp, good quality one will help you make better ones. To improve your rainbows, you can try sharpening from the other end of the pencil, using a better sharpener or applying a more constant force when turning the pencil. Trying to make the perfect rainbow is all part of the fun!

    Finish
    Each pencil is printed with logo on one side and “rainbow pencil by duncan shotton” on the other. The outer (black, white or light grey) layers of each pencil are also made from recycled paper. The finish of each pencil is therefore never ‘perfect’ and will contain marks and imperfections, as is standard of recycled paper.
