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.

8th October

Three members met at Gill's house on Tuesday 8th October.

Diane had been in touch with Jane Lappage, a calligraphy tutor and we discussed the possibility of her coming to Ashby in the New Year to have a workshop with us. As a few of the group were unable to attend this meeting we decided to discuss it further in November.

We all continued our projects using an informal style of lettering and had an enjoyable and profitable morning.

Next month we will work on a piece of work with a Christmas theme.
