festival of calligraphy  

** Update, 24 May 2020 ** 
Festival 2020 has been cancelled due to the continued high risk of spreading the coronavirus at Festival, and taking into consideration the restrictions faced by delegates or tutors, such as being in a vulnerable group or on travel around the world.
We are really disappointed to announce this, as we know everyone was so looking forward to enjoying another great teaching and social event among friends.
We are looking forward instead to announcing this August the Festival programme for 2021, which our new team has prepared.

CLAS Festival of Calligraphy is an unforgettable week of new calligraphic experiences. This is a yearly event, usually held in August, with 80 spaces on up to 5 simultaneous workshops. World class tutors teach a variety of courses in lettering and associated arts such as colour, bookbinding, manuscript illumination and so on. It is also a place to meet like-minded people and make new friends. And, it is FUN! 

Make sure that you’re one of the first to apply by being a CLAS member.

CLAS Festival 26, Keele University, Keele, Newcastle under Lyme, 23 – 29 August 2020

Tutors for 2020: Amity Parks, Andrea Wunderlich, Lucia Leyfield, Sue Smith, Susan Moor, Vivien Lunniss
