Our members are among the most generous and creative people you could ever hope to meet!

Whether you live near us or halfway around the world, our members will welcome you with openness, curiosity, and generosity.
Joining the Colleagues provides great opportunities to

  • learn about the lettering arts
  • stretch your artistic muscles
  • have fun and a good laugh (and always good food, if you're in town!)
  • network with other calligraphy artists and appreciators

The more diverse we are, the more interesting we are. As interest in calligraphy continues to grow everywhere, we want you to know we welcome you.

We are an all-volunteer run, membership-dues supported organization. 

Your once-a-year payment is what enables us to continue offering the best learning opportunities we can.

Thank you!
