Modern Calligraphy Kit
Learning calligraphy requires time and dedication. You may as well get started with high-quality supplies that will make the most of your precious practice time.
Some of the most common complaints that I used to hear from my students were the result of poor calligraphy supplies. You have no way to know if your ink is too thin or if you've purchased a particularly challenging nib when you're just beginning to learn the art of calligraphy.
We developed our Modern Calligraphy Kit to go with Melissa's Modern Calligraphy Class. It provides students a simple and inexpensive way to get the supplies that they need delivered to their doorsteps, no matter where they live. We've shipped these kits all around the world, and we've kept our prices low to make your decision easier.
You can order these supplies from online or brick-and-mortar retailers at a similar price, and we have a supplies guide to help you do that. I recommend making a smaller order before taking the class, because you'll have a much better idea of what you need after completing the coursework.
We've included an inventory of the kit as well as some Frequently Asked Questions below.
