Our Edmonton Calligraphic Society is delighted to invite local lettering artist, Kelly Klapstein, to our October 3 meeting. She is a brush-letter expert who has travelled the world giving workshops, and we are proud to present our fellow Edmontonian next month. She will provide pens to use and paper necessary for the lesson. Space is limited, so don’t delay in getting your ticket!

 

 

 

Come prepared to sign up for this year’s membership. (Reminder: membership year is July 1st to June 30th.)

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.

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 #210, Edmonton, AB T6L OA9.)

A reminder that our membership year is from July 1st to June 30th. For more information, please go to our Membership Page.
