I am fond of saying that when you discover calligraphy, and others who share your love of the art of beautiful handwriting, you have found your tribe.
From the look and feel of lush papers to out-of-the-ordinary surfaces lettered with rich inks, pigments or paints, hand-made lettering simply takes our breath away.
Maybe you are new to appreciating or learning about calligraphy. Perhaps you are a long-time student or master of this art.
Whatever your background, I invite you to explore how we express our passion for calligraphy. Our members are a generous, welcoming group of people, eager to learn from you and share what they know.
This website, newly re-designed as of July 2017, enables us to be more interactive. We expect and are excited for how it will change and develop over time.
I invite you to share your thoughts and ideas about what you find here – or would like to find – by contacting me at email@example.com.
Our mission is to PROMOTE the critical practice of calligraphy as a craft and as an art form, and to ENCOURAGE individual excellence, and to FOSTER a wider appreciation and a deeper understanding of calligraphy, its history and applications through the free interchange of ideas and techniques.
