My wife, Gemma Milly, has curated her own Modern Calligraphy kit containing everything you need to get started with Modern calligraphy. This beautiful gift set includes:
- a workbook to get you started, containing all the material that we cover in my 121 courses. It covers how to use your materials, instructions, examples to copy and exercises to practice
- a choice of a straight or oblique nib holder OR upgrade to a solid brass oblique 'Tom's Studio' nib holder (made to order in 3 weeks)
- black ink
- gold foiled pencil
- 40 page practice booklet, with tear-out guidelines and perforated pages. Smooth white bleed-proof paper, thin enough to place your guidelines underneath.
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.
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 hold and use your dip pen, before moving on to basic strokes and alphabets. Once you've got the hang go it, there are examples for you to copy and practice so you can begin to construct your own phrases. Written by Gemma Milly, a full-time calligrapher and teacher of Modern Calligraphy.
Please see pictures for nib holder choices and message me if you are unsure as to which holder to go for. The straight holder is an excellent choice if you are just starting out, whereas the oblique holder is really lovely to use once you get the hang of it, which won't take you long.
Box size: 32cm x 22cm x 4cm
If you are giving this kit as a gift, I will gift wrap the box and include a personalised notecard at no extra charge. Please let me know your message when ordering
