What a whirlwind last year was! I hope 2017 has been as wonderful for you as it has for us here at the English Wedding Blog HQ. Time to start afresh, relax and rewind, and make some lovely plans for the year ahead. If you’re thinking ahead to your 2018 wedding (eeekkk!!) and looking for a project or a crafty little challenge for the year ahead, I might just have the perfect solution.
We all LOVE a bit of wedding crafting. Over the last year or so DIY weddings have become so much more sophisticated – and one of my very favourite things is seeing couples learning from the experts. Courses on flower arranging, cake design and more have caught our attention – but my personal favourite will always be calligraphy. It’s such a lovely hobby – it will stay with you for life, and having the skills to write your own invitations, design your own stationery – and add that personal touch to everything.

Learning calligraphy at home is easy with this modern calligraphy starter kit. As soon as you open it, you’ll be able to dive straight in! Includes a gorgeous 36 page book full of advice, letters to copy and practice, alphabets and examples.
This kit gives you so much more than most: it includes a dip pen and ink, high quality nib, gridline paper sheets as well as the 36 page guide book. The lovely NEW gold foil printed presentation box means you can keep all of your calligraphy bits and pieces inside.
This kit is presented with the greatest attention to detail and will help you through your calligraphy adventures from day one and for weeks and months to come!
