News from my little calligraphy studio

Happy Thursday! Many of you will know I’m a calligrapher when I’m not blogging. It’s been a crazy old year and with Christmas coming round I wanted to show you lovely lot what I get up to! This time of year is all about family trees and calligraphy gift sets – with the odd commissioned artwork thrown in. Everything I do is designed for gifting: beautiful packaging is a major part of what I do.

This beautifully presented letterbox calligraphy set is super slimline and designed for distance gifting… in a time when we’re all missing our families and best friends so much, this one will slip through a letterbox as a special treat – simple, quick and with everything to start out on calligraphy adventures! The worksheets come as printable downloads – so a printer is needed. This calligraphy set is unique and makes a really special personalised letterbox gift.

I made this ultimate calligraphy kit to be compact and giftable – it started with the box, and then along came the printable worksheets.

This kit has two nibs, a dippy ink pot and luxe pen holder. It’s elegantly packaged and personalised with a named gift tag. Inside, I’ve written a motivational postcard in gold ink just for you!
