Calligraphy Starter Kit


If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at calligraphy but don’t know where to start this starter kit is for you!

Created by Lettering Artist, Modern Calligrapher and Stationery Designer Alice Gabb, this kit is full to the brim with the perfect supplies to master modern calligraphy.

Alice spent many months (and a lot of money!) trying out different nibs, inks and papers before she felt happy and confident with her lettering, and has ensured that these kits have the right tools to make that awkward learner stage as short as possible.

You can discover more about Alice’s journey as a Lettering Artist in her episode of Conversations of Inspiration, the perfect thing to listen to as you practice your calligraphy!

Podcast Guest – Alice Gabb

Alice is a calligrapher, illustrator and stationery designer based in Hackney, East London. She’s an ardent celebrator of all things that are different and make a difference and we are very excited to be stocking her wonderful kits.

After graduating from Bath Spa University in 2009 with a Visual Communications degree, she started to sell hand printed fine stationery at Broadway Market (and was voted ‘London’s Coolest Stall Holder’ by Company magazine, don’t you know.)

Originally a self-taught calligrapher since 2014, she now teaches workshops across London, sharing all the tips and tricks she’s picked up along the way.

‘I’m lucky enough to spend all my days teaching lettering, and designing beautiful things for beautiful events and weddings’.
