The Calligraphy Group
Leader:  Jenny Slawson - email@example.com - 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.

This morning 6 members of the Calligraphy Group met with the intention of continuing with the theme of planning and organisation needed for a piece of work.
There is so much more to calligraphy than just producing a nice piece of writing.
Things to consider include letter ascenders and descenders, spaces between words, thickness or thinness of letter strokes, decorations and illustrations - we need to practise more!
