The Wild Calligraphy Kits are coming to Handmade, Nottingham ✨

Updated: Nov 23, 2020

The Wild Calligraphy kits have been HUGE this year. I launched the Home Calligraphy Club in April at the height of the pandemic, and more recently, the Wild Taster Kits - a budget friendly option for those wanting to dabble with calligraphy before committing to a full kit.


I know that all wild kits will make the best Christmas presents, so I am so excited to announce that I will be collaborating with Handmade Nottingham and wholesaling a limited number of Wild Kits this winter. 💥


There will be 4 kits available: 2 taster kits, and 2 full kits.

I've attached the break down of each kit below for you to peruse. All kits are available to purchase in store and online from Handmade NOW. Sold out? You can still access digital downloads of each kit via the Wild Calligraphy shop.
