At our January Executive meeting, we normally do our planning for the following year, which would be September 2022 to June 2023. We are still unsure of our ability to meet in person in large numbers so are not making firm decisions about September and October; however, we DID decide to carry on with hiring professional calligraphers to provide instruction via ZOOM for our November, December, January, and February monthly meetings. The ZOOM sessions have been immensely popular and since those are our darkest, snowiest months, we felt people would be happy with this decision. (If it turns out that we can meet safely, we may arrange to have our Mentor Meet-ups in a location that can accommodate more people so we can meet in person.) We’re waiting to see how COVID manifests itself before we plan out the last four months of our 2023 ECS year.

Of course, we know that going back to holding only in-person meetings would eliminate all the out-of-Edmonton members who have joined us during the last two years. By offering 4 Zoom meetings (8 hours of instruction) with skilled calligraphers, we hope those who live elsewhere in Canada, the US, and other countries, will choose to stick with us when your membership comes up for renewal.

About the organizer

Calligraphy in Edmonton:

The Edmonton Calligraphic Society is a non profit volunteer/member arts group operating in the City of Edmonton and adjacent areas to introduce and promote calligraphy (beautiful writing) as an Art form.

The mission of the group is to provide opportunities for ECS members and others to develop and refine lettering skills and their application to other arts...bookmaking, journaling, mixed media and fabric arts.

Our tradition is to provide workshops (cost recovery) that often span several days or are continuous weekly classes. This provides the opportunity for the development of muscle memory when learning a new skill, individualized instruction/feedback and mentoring by experienced calligraphers.
