Not only did a little parcel of gorgeousness arrive, but the quality is of a high standard. I couldn't wait to get started. I used my kit for the first time yesterday and I loved it all.

Why do i need a kit?

The most commmon question I get asked is what equipment do I need to start calligraphy?

That’s why I created my beginner kit!

Designed for total beginners it 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 (been there).

Teamed up with signature guides and practice sheets it’s the best and most affordable way to start your calligraphy journey.
