Our purpose is to

 promote the study and practice of calligraphy,
encourage artistic growth and
appreciation of the lettering arts, and
foster the exchange of ideas among our members
and the community.

Organized in January 1984 and based in Orlando, Florida.

 

Our members come from all walks of life and include beginners, hobbyists and professionals alike.

There are some great photos from our 10/1 meeting and the one day class on Foundational on Facebook (Scribes of Central Florida), and if you haven’t “liked” it the page, you should.  Also, if you are a member and not attending meetings, we would love to have you come and join in the fun!

Upcoming Events

 

 

 

A Glorious Weekend with Barry Morentz

We are nearing capacity on Saturday and Sunday, so please let Brian know that you are interested. For more information see our Meeting/Workshop page

Saturday will be GLORIOUS GOTHIC CAPITALS

Modern scribes can use these bewitching forms with abandon, and combining a large, rich Gothic capital with, say, a delicate pointed pen alphabet, or a formal Italic or Foundational hand spices up the line and creates much visual interest and contrast.

 

GOLD, GOLD, AND MORE GOLD on Sunday

In this class we will try out 32 kinds of gold

 

On Monday, we shall make a simple, elegant, Japanese-style folded box. The box is essentially a square, formed from one long sheet of card stock scored and folded to create equal triangular shapes. It can easily be expanded to the shape of a pentagon, hexagon, octagon, etc.

 

Class level:  Foundational and Italic helpful

Prices:  $135 for Glorious Gothic Caps and Gold (Sat/Sun)
