Our purpose is to promote the study and practice of calligraphy,
to encourage individual excellence, to foster a wider appreciation and deeper understanding of calligraphy, its history and applications.
In existence for over forty years, our membership is international with our core strength in San Francisco, California where our workshops and events are hosted. The society sponsors classes, workshops, lectures, exhibitions, a Spring Retreat, and a Holiday Party. Publications include a membership directory, the journal, Alphabet, published four times a year, and the Bulletin, published four times a year.
We invite you to support the art of calligraphy and join the Friends.
