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.

12th March

We had a productive morning discussing planning and organisation.Gill, (who has had prior experience) led the meeting and provided us with notes and information to plan our work. We learned a range of techniques and ideas to try. All we have to do now is spend some time in putting these new-found skills into practice!
