Welcome to the Edmonton Calligraphic Society (ECS) —a group of calligraphers, lettering artists and advocates of handwriting. Our passion is to study, to write and to promote hand lettering as a visual art form in Edmonton, Alberta and the surrounding area. Welcome!

The ECS is a non-profit organization formed in February 1986. The mission of the ECS is to develop and refine calligraphy and related arts among members, and to introduce and promote the art of calligraphy to the general public in the Edmonton area.

The ECS is active September through June, and hosts general meetings, lectures, introductory classes, and a variety of workshops. The ECS also actively participates in many Edmonton community events and runs a cursive writing program for Grade 3 students.

ECS Membership is open to all, regardless of calligraphic ability. We are lifelong learners.

New members are welcome to join at any time during the year. Please see our membership section to learn about the benefits of membership and to apply.

Join the conversation! We are on Facebook.
