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.

This afternoon of card-making is just one of example of the many ways we combine our love of lettering and art.
