2016 Calligraphy Basics Workshops


In association with Cass Art, Glasgow, we held two days of Calligraphy Basics workshops to encourage visitors to try calligraphy or to refresh past skills:-

Saturday 23 July 2016
Saturday 20 August 2016 

Places on the 10am - 12 noon or 2 - 4pm sessions were pre-booked following publicity produced by Cass Art and the Glasgow Scribes and via local newspapers and radio stations.  The workshops were delivered by one of our members, Iain Howie, who successfully enthused and inspired participants in a relaxing, learning environment during the session.  We're sure that participants will continue to enjoy their new found or past hobby and will help to promote an enjoyable and creative pasttime to others. 
 
Thanks to Iain for all his hard work and enthusiasm and also to Cass Art Glasgow staff for their friendly support, time and effort before and during the events.
