Hi everyone, just a quick note to let you know that I have put the internet addresses of some calligraphy equipment suppliers onto my equipment page. I am not recommending any of these suppliers in particular, and I am sure that there are many more you could find with a good on-line search. So please consider these a starting point for your own investigations.
I clearly remember just how difficult it is when you are a complete beginner and know nothing at all about what you need and what you don’t need and I hope that you will find it useful to browse through the catalogues of these companies. Do remember that you do not have to buy one of EVERYTHING you see and that the cheaper option of some copy paper, a small bottle of ink, a pen holder and a few nibs of different sizes is all the specialist equipment you need to get you started. Basic things like unlined A4 paper, a pencil, eraser, protractor and ruler you might already have at home or you can buy them easily from your local shopping center. You can even start with just 2 pencils taped together ………!! I will put up some information about pencil letters very soon. Just as soon as the warmer weather disappears in a couple of days time.
In the meantime, I hope that you are all well and coping with the strange situation that we all find ourselves in.
