These meetings are held at the North East Community House from 1pm - 4pm and consist of a brief general meeting followed by a workshop (see map below).
Workshop topics vary and have included, Black letter, Gothic, Pergamano, Copperplate, flourishing, decorating, Zentangles and much much more!
The Society also hosts intensive one day workshops during the year and occasionally offers master-class by interstate and international calligraphers who we invite to Adelaide.
For more information about workshops please contact the Society and like us on Facebook for updates.
Several classes are run each year through the WEA of SA (Workers' Educational Association of South Australia Inc) by Anne Taylor, one of the Society's members. Please check the WEA website (https://www.wea-sa.com.au) and search on "Calligraphy" for details.
We sincerely regret to advise that the workshop by Argentinian calligrapher and artists Marina Soria on 24th & 25th March has been cancelled. This decision is as much about our concerns for Marina's ability to return home as it is with participant welfare. The situation with international travel seems to be changing on a daily basis, and we thought it wise to give her the opportunity to return while the window was available.
