Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

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

    Beautiful experience

    The whole experience of buying, opening and using the equipment I purchased from Tom’s Studio was wonderful, calming and strangely uplifting - no idea why or how that happened!

    Why Tom's Studio

    Values & Craftsmanship

    Tom still uses the same design principles as the very first pen he made for his wife. It's important to him to create products that his customers will cherish for the rest of their lives. It's why each every one of my products has a lifetime guarantee.

     "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." William Morris

    Creativity Tools

    Tools of the past were made by master craftspeople that cared passionately about their craft and the experience of the people using their products. We seem to have lost the 'soul' of these tools in the age of mass production. It's my mission to bring the creative soul back to the tools we use every day.

    "Creativity is contagious, pass it on" Albert Einstein

    Tried and Tested

    Seeing his calligrapher wife, Gemma Milly, using a mass-produced calligraphy pen inspired Tom to craft a collection of pens that matched the high quality of her work. Using a 60-year-old engineering lathe, he now makes pens for some of the world’s most celebrated calligraphers and stationery brands.

    "Beauty Is The Harmony Of Purpose And Form." Alvar Aalto

    A Labour Of Love

    From the first pen I made for my wife to the pens I now make for my customers around the world.  I put the same care and attention into each and every pen.  I love what I do and hope that it shows in the finished product.
