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).

    Both charming and practical. Clear instructions, high-quality items, and all of it packaged within a sturdy, beautifully designed box.

    This was the perfect way for me to get started with pointed pen calligraphy. I was bewildered by all the supplies and didn’t know what I needed. This solved the problem for me and I’m well on my way in pointed pen calligraphy now.

    I thought about putting together my own kit. Learning pointed pen calligraphy was a bday gift to myself, but decided on this instead, and was super blessed. The packaging made it so gifty and special, and the specially curated items with lessons helped me find enjoyment and success right away.

    I purchased this kit a couple of months ago. I was so excited when it arrived. It has been a lifelong dream to learn true calligraphy. While life is keeping me very busy post Hurricane Michael and still searching for a new home, I have not had the time to start using the workbook plus I plan to take the class. The products are of the best quality, well worth the price. Customer service is very quick to respond to any questions or problems. I highly recommend this starter kit to anyone who wishes to take the journey into this practice. I belong to a Letter Writers group and look forward to using this beautiful writing wirh all of my “snail mail”.

    I spent many years dancing around the idea of trying calligraphy, and bought a few kits to spark inspiration. None of them stuck though- the instructions were not detailed enough, and the items were all cheap and low-quality. However, I knew I had found a gem when a friend gifted me this kit! The supplies inside has lasted me many hours of practice, and the packaging is absolutely beautiful (I still have the box!). This was honestly one of the best gifts I have ever received!

    Wonderful way to start something beautiful! I bought this kit around summer 2020 along with online instruction course. It was the BEST during quarantine! It was calming to practice and I made some impressive cards for family. Be warned: you WILL get hooked and need more colors if ink and variety of nibs! Enjoy!

  7. Erin Good

    This kit has everything I need to begin pointed pen calligraphy! Even down to a jar to store the ink and a cleaning cloth for my pen. I’m so glad I grabbed this rather than piecing it together on my own.

  8. Kerin McMillen

    Delightful…. Was so excited and everything about and in this box was so thoughtful and made me feel so special. Loved the cloth design and that it had little ink spot artistically designed into it so you didn’t mind getting it dirty…. And the little ceramic water cup was amazing…. I had to start right away.

  9. Gail Slagle

    Wonderful kit! Highly recommend this beginner kit and Lindsey’s beginner course.

    I assisted my nephew in purchasing your started kit for his mother (my sister) for a special occasion. It is perfect for a beginner in that everything is chosen by a professional and contains exactly what one needs. Beautiful packaging also.
