Welcome to the Cosy Craft Club's calligraphy month! We really want to encourage you to have a go at calligraphy yourself, and we'll be sharing the key things you need to know to get started. You can find all our calligraphy posts in one place here.

Introducing our gorgeous copperplate calligraphy kits from Meticulous Ink! These kits have been painstakingly put together by Athena - a lady who is truly meticulous.

To start with, take a look at the outside - they're almost too beautiful to open!

This kit is a great introduction for anyone who's ever wanted to give calligraphy a try. Calligraphy is a skill that anyone can learn, it doesn't matter what your handwriting is like or whether you've tried anything like this before or not.

The key to this craft is practice, practice, practice. A little every day is better than 2 hours in a row.

Use your new found calligraphy skills for writing invitations, decorating cards, wall art, poems, envelope art and so much moreā€¦

After practicing my letters for a couple of weeks, this is what I produced. I thought the quote was quite appropriate!

Our beautiful calligraphy kits can be purchased from our shop.

Meticulous Ink is a stationery design and print company based in Bath, founded and owned by Athena Cauley-Yu. Athena loves to share her enthusiasm for beautiful calligraphy. Her deep rooted passion for being meticulous is evident in this kit - for example, she couldn't find an ink she really loved, so she created her own!
