Canberra Calligraphy Society 25th anniversary cake designed and made by Sara Rawlingson

In January 1986 three friends, Ricky Edmunds, Ali O'Flaherty and myself held a public meeting to gather interest to create the Canberra Calligraphy Society.  It was a well attended evening held at Bruce Technical College during one of Canberra's ferocious summer storms.  What a way to start a Society!

Now twenty-five years later some of those who joined in the early days are still with us, some have moved aways and sadly some have passed away.  It is however, still a vibrant and wonderful Society to belong to.  All best wishes to the the Canberra people who have continued to pursue and promote the pen's excellence.
