Why do i need a kit or course?

The most common question I get asked is what equipment do I need to start calligraphy and how do I progress?

That’s why I created my beginner kit and course combo! It sets up everything you need to progress and learn the core foundational calligraphy skills.

Designed for total beginners, my kit includes the same professional equipment I use on a daily basis - everything you need to get started.

It takes the stress and frustration of scouring the internet and wasting money on naff supplies and hit and miss tutorials (been there).

Avoid frustration and start your calligraphy journey in the best way.  Set yourself up for success not failure.
