The Canberra Calligraphy Society was founded in 1986, when three friends gathered and called for people interested in calligraphy to come together. The Society was formed and since then has gone from strength to strength, maintaining a membership of roughly 60 calligraphy enthusiasts. In 2016 the Society celebrated its 30th anniversary and is looking forward to another exciting 30 years of calligraphy in Canberra. As ideas and techniques change the penmanship also evolves. Tutors for workshops are sourced from amongst our members, interstate and international calligraphers. A brief history of the Society can be found here.
Workshops are held once a month at the Urambi Village Community Hall in Crozier Circuit, Driveway B, Kambah, usually from 1 pm–4.30 pm on the 4th Sunday of every month, except December and January. Once or twice a year the Society organises weekend workshops with visiting tutors.
CCS members can access current and past newletters on the Members page.
CCS Christmas Party
The CCS Christmas gathering will be on Saturday, 2nd December at 2.30 pm at Urambi. There will be the usual hand-made Christmas card swap (i.e. bring your hand-made card and you receive one in return), and you can bring calligraphic items to sell/swap (books, cards, supplies, etc). And there will be a Lucky Dip!
Committee members will bring a plate of food and some drinks to share - and you are welcome to bring something to add to the festivities too.
