The Calligraphy Box is a monthly subscription box perfect for anyone wanting to learn and improve their calligraphy from home. We do include some products, but our main focus is to give you the lessons and instruction that will help you improve.
We teach pointed pen calligraphy including Copperplate, a range of modern calligraphy styles, and Spencerian Script. When you subscribe you will begin with the beginners box (if you select that you are a beginner) which will teach you everything you need to know to get started - proper positioning, adding a releasing pressure, nib prep etc. You will also practice with the modern calligraphy alphabet. The following five boxes will take you on a deep dive into our core box lessons - Copperplate techniques, Copperplate lowercase letters, spacing and connections, improving precision and consistency and Copperplate capitals. After this, you will join our advanced group receiving boxes on topics such as envelope calligraphy, flourishing above and below the baseline, artwork creation, Spencerian, calligraphic drawing, borders, business cursive, brush calligraphy and more. We have over three years of boxes to keep you improving if you want to keep learning with us! Our workbooks and video lessons and designed to give you lots of inspiration and everything you need to see your calligraphy go from strength to strength every month.
