The TPK Modern Calligraphy Starter Kit is the very best kit out there. After years of teaching students — both in person and online — I have a unique understanding of the tools and instructions that ensure your success! That’s why this kit includes:

  • Nikko G nib – the most approachable calligraphy nib for most beginners
  • Brause EF66 nib – a wonderful little nib that will give you dramatic stroke contrast
  • Nib tin – to safely store your nibs
  • Pearly turquoise straight pen with universal insert that will fit most calligraphy nibs
  • Wooden oblique pen with a flange that I hand-adjust to fit the Nikko G nib like a glove
  • “Art water” cup – to store the water that you use to clean nibs throughout writing sessions
  • Tightly woven cleaning cloth to wipe off your nibs throughout and after your writing sessions
  • Yasutomo sumi ink (2 oz.) – A velvety Japanese sumi ink that’s great for any skill level
  • Glass jar with screw-top gold lid (1 oz.) for long-term ink storage
  • 49-page workbook (6″ x 8.5″, 15.24 cm x 21.6 cm) full of information and guided practice (Workbook can be used to take The Beginner’s Modern Calligraphy Online Course.)

Calligraphy starter kit dimensions are 9.75″ long x 7″ wide x 2.25″ tall (24.75 cm x 18 cm x 5.75 cm).

    This was such a great starter kit for learning pointed pen calligraphy! It was beautifully organized and I felt like each item that was included was done with purpose. I’ve had a lot of fun using this kit (and have even kept the box because it’s so beautiful)! Thanks for all you do Lindsey

    I have always wanted to learn calligraphy, but never had the right supplies and often became frustrated quickly in the process. After coming back to look at this kit multiple times, I finally decided to make the purchase and I could not have been more pleased. The products in this kit are extremely high quality, the packaging is beautiful, and the lesson book is immensely helpful in getting someone started with the art of calligraphy. Within a week of getting the kit, I was sending letters to family and friends to practice and show off my skills.
    Thanks Lindsey for helping me get through the fall/ winter of 2020-2021. I’ve been dreading quarantine during these coming months, but with calligraphy and watercolor, I’m more than happy to stay at home and be creative now!

    This is a perfect starter kit! Each item included, selected with intention and packaged in a personal and thoughtful way. Lindsey is also helpful and responsive via email for any questions or troubleshooting. Highly recommend for yourself or a gift for anyone interested in learning calligraphy!

    Naturally this kit is the perfect starter kit, it comes from someone who teaches calligraphy and knows what she’s doing. It’s like having your favorite teacher gathering all the supplies you need for class. The care and attention that went into the packaging is obvious from the minute you open the box – you can tell everything was very thoughtfully and creatively packaged by someone who wants to share something very special with you (or with the person you give it to). Included is an instruction book with clear instructions, copious illustrations and a link to additional free materials. I purchased this kit for myself but it would make a marvelous and unique gift, too (but don’t give it to anyone I know because *I* plan to do that!). Very happy I found TPK!

    Great Starter Kit – missed out on the first batch but so glad Lindsey made more! Love the personal touch that has gone into making this kit – thank you!

    A fantastic kit to start to the process of learning calligraphy. I recommend purchasing this with the beginner class, and in no time you will be starting the fun process of learning calligraphy! This kit has everything you need to dive right in. I love that when I went to start it was all in one place and it wasn’t overwhelming.

    The TPK Modern Calligraphy Starter Kit is a lovely gift to myself! I studied calligraphy years ago and enjoyed it very much, but, like so many fun and creative things, it was pushed out of the way by children, cooking, cleaning, working outside the home, etc. etc. etc. It’s now my time to regain some of the skills I lost or never had time to pursue. 🙂 I appreciate the high quality of the materials included in the pretty designed-for-this-purpose box as well as the clear and thoughtful instructions in the enclosed booklet. I can’t wait to get started!!

    Getting the Starter Kit in the post box really made my day! 🙂 It is really good stuff put together for a starter kit, that is going to last longer than my first steps in using a «pointy tipp» pen! 😉 And I really love the box!!!! 🙂 Thank you! 🙂

    I love, love, love this kit. It has all the essential I need. I have been a customer of TPK for over a year. I own all the worksheets and I love how easy they are to follow. It allows me to add my little personal touch too.
    My family loves receiving mail from me thanks to TPK. It was the best website I’ve ever clicked on. Thanks.
