WE HAVE WORKED ON PROVIDING AN EXCITING YEAR OF CALLIGRAPHY INSTRUCTION AND DEMONSTRATIONS DELIVERED TO YOU IN PERSON AND VIRTUALLY.
We’ve been working hard to plan the 2023-24 ECS year and are excited to announce the four professional calligraphers who have agreed to instruct our winter Zoom sessions. If you are an out-of-Edmonton area member, we think you’ll agree that these eight hours of learning are excellent value for your membership fee.
