The Edmonton Calligraphic Society is a non-profit organization formed in February 1986. The objective of the society is to develop and refine calligraphy and related crafts among members and to introduce and promote calligraphy as an art form to the general public in and around Edmonton. If you wish to see previous posts, please go to our Blog page.

Please know that we have now capped our membership and will NOT accept mailed membership forms. There are no memberships available through Eventbrite.

DUE TO THE COVID EPIDEMIC, OUR NORMAL CALLIGRAPHY YEAR, AND ALL OF THE BENEFITS OF BEING A MEMBER OF THE EDMONTON CALLIGRAPHIC SOCIETY HAS REQUIRED A CHANGE IN FORMAT DELIVERY. WE ARE WORKING TO PROVIDE YOU WITH AN EXCITING YEAR OF CALLIGRAPHY INSTRUCTION AND DEMONSTRATIONS DELIVERED TO YOU, VIRTUALLY.

FIVE times per year, the Edmonton Calligraphic Society (ECS) hosts General Meetings. General Meetings are designed to provide ECS members with the time and space to practice their calligraphy, gain valuable feedback and advice from fellow letterers, and learn about upcoming calligraphic events and volunteer opportunities.

This Membership year will be delivered virtually. Normally, General Meetings are typically hosted on the first Wednesday of the month from 6:00 – 8:50 PM at the Millwoods Library, Seniors and Multicultural Centre, 2610 Hewes Way NW, Edmonton, AB. 

A reminder that our membership year is from July 1st to June 30th.
