Next meeting is February 7th/2018. The Letters and Lines theme is “Songs of the Heart” and the Learn to Letter Class is Fraktur.
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 Wednesdays from 6:15 – 8:50 PM at the Millwoods Library, Seniors and Multicultural Centre.
Below, you’ll find a quick overview of a typical ECS monthly General Meeting.
6:15 Meeting doors open.
Doors Open, Setup, Door Prizes, Workshops, Supply Shop, Library, New Acquisitions, Volunteer Opportunities, Photo Op table, Lines and Letters
It is recommended that you arrive early to get yourself setup and organized for the class. The best seats do go quickly. This will give you time to check out all that the Edmonton Calligraphic Society has to offer: members are invited to browse the library and supplies, pick up a nametag or supply kit, buy a door prize ticket and set up their “Letters and Lines” for sharing. Take an opportunity to view and discuss lettering work done in the past month. (Please click on link to learn more about Letters and Lines.)
