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 an incredible box with everything I needed to start calligraphy. It was so well packaged and the gift wrapping that you did was amazing! It put all the other gifts under the tree to shame. Thank you!

    This was the perfect little kit to get me into calligraphy, and it comes in a beautiful box as well – highly recommend 🙂

    OMG! I put the nibs on (easily, just like it was explained), dipped it in the ink provided, and started practicing the strokes in the How-To book provided. And. It. All. Worked! I did decent calligraphy! I expected a much longer learning curve and problems with ink blobs or paper tears. What a great introduction to this art.

    Lindsay went above and beyond to make sure that I had everything that I needed to begin practicing my calligraphy. Including mailing copies of the printable worksheets, since I was unable to print at the big box store. Thank you, Lindsay

    One of the hurdles to getting started with any new project is having the right supplies. While I usually like to find the best bargain by finding the most economical vendor, it was such a weight off my shoulders to purchase the kit without having to spend all the time researching. Everything I needed was included- tried and tested and curated by Lindsey- so I could rest easy that I had everything I needed to start right away without any hangups. The tools themselves are very nice, I have a handy box to store all my supplies, and there were many personal touches in the box- embossed labels, pretty tape, and a lovely introduction card that made the kit beautiful and welcoming to receive. I am so glad the extra money was spent to take the stress out of shopping- after all, learning calligraphy is an activity I chose to help me relax. Glad I made the purchase.

    Just delighted to be able to give this as a Christmas present to my grandson. He has been very engaged in practicing. What could be better during these times of confinement than to have an activity that engages the brain and body plus creates a beautiful product

    My husband bought me this set for Christmas and I can’t wait to use it! The packaging is beautiful!

  8. Hannah Dubrow

    When I wanted to start learning calligraphy, one obstacle was how many different options there are for supplies. Ordering this kit was the best way for me to overcome the hesitation and just START. I still use the same supplies a year later (except new nibs).

    I’ve been eyeing this for a while and finally pulled the trigger and got it for my birthday. Love everything!

    My grandma surprised me and bought me one of these last Christmas and I absolutely love it! It is so beautifully put together and it has made learning calligraphy so fun! I honestly didn’t know where to start when it came to what calligraphy supplies to purchase, there are so many different products that I got overwhelmed when researching. However, this product and all the worksheets provided on this site have remedied that problem! I highly recommend! 🙂
