The monthly subscription box for learning & practicing calligraphy
I’m a newbie to calligraphy but the lessons seem thorough, detailed and I love the little details and thought put into everything. But I especially like the way the packaging is done as the sleeve comes off the box and the box is completely blank so easily usable as a box to send something in yourself which I think is amazing, same with the tissue paper inside , all easily reused. More companies need to package this way. Well done for being reuse friendly 🙌🏻

The Calligraphy Box Scheme is brilliant. You don't realise how much there is to learn. From reading the booklet in the box and doing the practice and then watching the Webinar it helps you improve your calligraphy so much each month. Waiting for the next box is so exciting too and each one is presented perfectly. You feel part of a group all learning together and Jenni is so friendly and helpful and her enthusiasm for the subject is infectious. I would highly recommend subscribing to the Calligraphy Box. It is enjoyable and for regular monthly tuition is real value for money.

Whether you're a beginner looking to get started or an expert that fancies trying new supplies each month, the Calligraphy Box is amazing. I chose the starter box for my first one, and it was fantastic. It included a full size Rhodia Pad, nib, ink, user guide for starting up with exercises, worksheets and exemplar, and a link for a live webinars.
The webinar was so easy to follow, with Jenni providing a live guide on how to hold the pen, angle the paper and form the letters. There's even an exclusive Facebook page where you can ask for guidance and show your work for help and encouragement. It's a great subscription or gift idea and a brilliant way to learn a new skill or creative pastime.

I'm really enjoying my beginner experience remotely with Jenni! Products are high quality and Jenni's responses to questions are very prompt. The link to review the live session is great for 'revision'!

As a self taught calligrapher of 4 years I always want to further my skills. I had been following Jenni on Instagram for a while before the boxes were released as I had admired her brilliant penmanship. It is a bit scary parting with money for something that was new and didn't have any reviews but I took the leap as she is such a talented calligrapher. The very first box included way more content than I could have anticipated . A class in London is £70 on average so to sign up for 3 boxes for less than that with a live webinar session to have your questions answered was a no brainer. The box included new things for me and unexpectedly delved into flourishing which is a personal weak point. There are plenty of examples to keep you busy and everything is so clearly and beautifully presented . I would recommend this to anyone that has a passion for calligraphy or wants to learn something new. I certainly wish this was around when I first picked up a dip pen! Thank you Jenni!

Each monthly box includes:
1. A new ink
2. A new nib or additional item
3. An in-depth lesson on a new topic every month including flourishing, combining letter, composition, creative projects, or envelope addressing for example.
4. Practice sheets with grid lines specific to the lesson
5. Letter focus cards - these cards will focus on one capital letter each month, showing different ways to flourish and add variation to your writing.
6. A live hour-long video lesson - this will be available through a private webinar link that will be sent to you via email. You can attend the live video and practice along or watch the replay.
7. Private Facebook group - this group is only for calligraphy box subscribers and will be a great way to connect with other calligraphers, post work and importantly get feedback.
Don't worry, if you are a beginner then you can select this option at the checkout. This will mean that the first box that you receive will be a specially created beginner's box which will have everything you need to get you started including a workbook, basic strokes exercises, fundamentals, positioning and black ink.
