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.

Bookings are now open for Gemma's Fraktur workshop on 22 - 23 October 2022. Unfortunately, the Committee has had to revise the fee for this workshop due to increased costs. The fee will now be $150 for a member ($225 for a non-member). A non-refundable deposit of $30 will be required (as in the past).
The procedure to book for this two-day workshop is
send an email to the Workshop Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register (if you have already sent a message to Pam, she will be in touch with you directly);
wait until your place is confirmed by Pam BEFOREpaying the deposit;
pay the remaining balance by the date that Pam will give you.
We regret that the fee has increased and hope you understand that while we try to keep costs down, we also have to manage our funds wisely.
The Society continues to welcome new and returning members for 2022. For renewing and new members, please go to the Membership page for instructions. The Society wishes to welcome our newest members, Janet J., Peter S. and Allira M.
