My wife Gemma of gemmamilly.com has curated her own Modern Calligraphy kit containing everything you need to get started with Copperplate lettering and Modern calligraphy. This beautiful gift set includes:
- a workbook to get you started, containing 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)
- a Nikko G nib
- black ink
- practice paper
- ruled guidelines for keeping your writing nice and straight
- a gold foiled pencil
- grey and rose gold foiled notebook, for practicing in pencil before you go on to pen, and making notes on your progress
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 it's 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 contract your own phrases. Written by Gemma Milly, a full-time calligrapher and teacher of both traditional Copperplate and Modern Calligraphy.
If you are giving this kit as a gift, I will gift wrap the box and include a hand calligraphered personalised notecard at no extra charge. Please let me know your message when ordering.
Please see pictures for nib holder choices and message me if you are unsure as to which holder to go for.
Box size: 32cm x 22cm x 4cm
