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.

8th March

Six of us met at Gill's to attempt our next project. The topic was 'Spring' and the challenge was to use Modern Calligraphy fonts to produce a piece of work reflecting this new season. Although we had previously decided to try and finish a piece at each meeting, some members felt they needed more practice before a final attempt and some thought the A5 size was too restrictive!! It is difficult to move from a more formal approach to one that is freer and more flowing. We continue to learn and hopefully improve!

Next month we are at Ann's house concentrating on Easter (Eostre) and using repeating letters and words. Should be interesting.
