Westcoast Calligraphy Society – Letters to the Garden

Westcoast Calligraphy Society’s “Letters to the Garden”The Westcoast Calligraphy Society’s “Letters to the Garden” is an exhibition with a  theme of spring-time and gardens.   With different designs of colour, illustration, bookbinding, and paper making, within the mutual interest in the art of letters, “Letters to the Garden” was a travelling exhibition that has been displayed throughout the lower mainland, including Cloverdale Library and Fleetwood Public Library in Surrey, and the Kay Meek Centre in West Vancouver, B.C.

The Society began life in September 1978 as the Society for Italic Handwriting, B. C. Branch. As the Society grew and its members’ interests expanded, the focus broadened to all types of calligraphy and in June 1986, the name was changed to Westcoast Calligraphy Society.  The society is an enthusiastic group of people with a common bond–a love of all things calligraphic.  Members share knowledge of design, colour, illustration, bookbinding, paper making and our other talents with everyone interested in the art of letters with more experienced members teaching beginning and more advanced calligraphy throughtout the Lower Mainland.
