Programs & Workshops
Our members’ skill levels, ages, and interests make for an exciting learning environment where information and experiences are exchanged.
Our monthly program meetings are included in one’s membership and are generally held:
• September through November and February through May
• On the third Saturday of the month (with the exception of a Friday night program meeting in the fall and in the spring)
• From 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Social time from 12:30 to 1:00 p.m., with the meeting and program beginning at 1:00 p.m.
• At Plymouth Congregational Church, 1900 Nicollet Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN, usually in the Jackman Room on the lower level
Non-members may attend one Colleagues program during our September through May activity year.
The Colleagues of Calligraphy is proud to bring in instructors from the U.S. and all over the world to teach in-depth workshops lasting 2-4 days. Generally the two-day workshops are held on a weekend. Each day is six hours of instruction. Class size is limited.
Details of workshops are posted online 6-8 weeks before the class dates. Find links for registration by clicking on an event below. Payment to secure a place is made online. Current dues-paying members are given first priority for placement (click on Become a Member at the bottom of this page).
In the event demand for a workshop seat is greater than capacity, open spots are offered to people on the waiting list in the order of when their wait list request was received.
Occasionally, event details may change. Please check back to make sure you have the most current information.
