The Calligraphy Guild of Pittsburgh is a group of lovers of letters banded together in the shared desire to improve understanding of those letters and their applications and possibilities. Membership in the guild is open to anyone, hand-writer or not, who shares these goals. The guild provides an arena in which calligraphers of all levels, beginners to professionals, share experiences, ideas, and technical insights. The guild’s season runs from September to June. Dues are $20 per year to cover operating costs and newsletter expenses. Monthly events include meetings, lectures, sharing, one-day and two-day workshops. A fee is charged for workshops to cover instructor and material costs.
