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 kit was incredible! I had already been doing calligraphy with supplies I had around the house (rag, cup, nib storage) but it was so much easier to have a bundle of all the right tools, not only in the best quality and hand picked by a professional, but also SO aesthetically pleasing! Everything is beautifully designed (the box is a piece of art itself) and it came very well packaged. So excited to keep learning and growing with the help of this kit!

    I believe in buying starter kits from the professionals because the supplies are just right and I don’t have to do the trial-and-error method of figuring out what’s what. The kit has everything I need to get started, which I haven’t yet as I just received it and I’ve been very busy. Anyway, the packaging is charming and I am so excited to try my hand with this kit! Thank you for your talent! <3

    First off, the whole package is so beautiful! It was like I was 7 again and opening a Christmas present! I have to confess, I haven’t dedicated much time to this wonderful learning process, but from my exploration, I can’t wait to get into a deep dive. I love that I have everything I need all together.
