The Calligraphy Group

Leader:  Sue Cornell - calligraphy@ashbyu3a.co.uk - phone 01530 413345

A small but friendly group,we enjoy extending our calligraphy skills through a more experimental and creative approach to writing texts.
We use a range of 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.

Future programme

11th February

Just four of us met today to plan our activities for this coming year, over coffee and a biscuit! With the help of our “expert” calligrapher Gill we are going to concentrate on italics with the intention of improving our technique. We will then construct a ‘concertina’ book using everything we’ve learnt.

Other topics include a trip out to attempt some glass fusion activities, designing a ‘holiday’ poster and a Halloween based project. All very constructive.
