Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Calligraphy & Lettering Arts Society, this exhibition presents almost 100 pieces of calligraphic and lettering work in a variety of media.
In an increasingly visual society, calligraphy has gained popularity as people appreciate the skilful demonstration of scripts and styles. It is also a thriving and popular craft skill that encourages anyone with a love of words to express themselves.
Traditional manuscript painting and gilding can be seen alongside many other techniques, such as writing on metals or glass, work with nibs, brushes and other tools, paints, inks and engraving, linocuts and digitally manipulated images.
The Calligraphy & Lettering Arts Society is one of the largest western lettering societies in the world. Based in the UK, it has an extensive membership in Europe as well as many other countries.
