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.
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.
