An ancient art, passed down from generation to generation, calligraphy, from the Greek kalligraphiā(beautiful
writing) is an art form more diverse than first thought.
Side by side with traditional Gothic and Copperplate sits modern interpretations, bold and expressive, but still well grounded in traditional rules of proportion and weight, these new frontiers make calligraphy an art form for all.
Enthusiastic amateurs and artists alike will find stimulating challenges and a supportive environment in which to push themselves at the Calligraphy Society of South Australia. Whether you would just like to send a beautifully penned Christmas card or are looking to incorporate letter forms into your own art you'll find friends and mentors at our monthly meetings and workshops.
Please note that meetings have re-commenced for 2021. The next meeting for the Calligraphy Society of South Australia is on Sunday 28th March at 1.15pm.
The title of the workshop for this meeting is ‘One Lovely Letter’. Anne and Marg will take us through several ideas for creating a single, beautiful calligraphy letter for framing or for making into a card to give to a friend. The letter will be in your choice of Calligraphic Hand or style, and you can use whichever medium you wish from pencil to pen and ink, simple or decorative, traditional or modern. A detailed list of requirements will be sent to members one week before the meeting.
