The Calligraphy Group

Leader:  Jenny Slawson - calligraphy@ashbyu3a.co.uk - phone 01283 229718

A small but friendly group,we enjoy extending our calligraphy skills through a more experimental and creative approach to writing texts.
We focus mainly on italic and uncial scripts and have produced some very imaginative pieces both at home and during our monthly meetings.
We usually meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 10am.

10th September

Six members met at Carole's house in September, we spent quite a lot of time talking about the kind of writing that we want to achieve. At the meeting we all produced a modern and free flowing piece of calligraphy, something which is quite alien to some of us. It is a challenge to let your hand flow freely. We also arranged our Christmas meal out, which is to be in January. A lovely morning spent chatting and writing.
