Description

2023 Online Classes:

Classes take the form of Zoom sessions which include demonstrations showing various nuances of lettering, slide presentations, practice and projects. Students are encouraged to focus on ‘master calligrapher techniques’ design and (especially) creativity. The small annual exhibition in November has become a tradition. We look forward to a formal studio presentation at the end of 2023. 

Friends and students are enthusiastic supporters of various community outreach projects which include making toys, tops and scarves for children and beanies, bootees and blankets for babies at Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto.

The group also makes cowls, scarves, blankets and beanies for rangers, guards and the wider community of Rex the Rhino Conservation Fund.  The Friends with Threads group continues to work on teddies for The Teddy Bear Foundation.

 

The Beginning:

In 1983 at the request of a group of friends, after I had completed a few months of calligraphy, I presented my first class in the dining room in my home in Houghton. No studio, very little equipment and 5 students. As a qualified teacher I realized that there was a need to develop creative courses for adults and children alike. 

Since those small beginnings I studied through the Roehampton College completing Foundational with tutor Margaret Daubney. I was a founder member of the calligraphy society and the teachers’ guild. I have since furthered my calligraphic studies with such tutors as Denys Taipele, Dick Beasley, Brody Neuenschwander, Ewan Clayton and more recently Karl Rohrs, Yves Laterme, Lin Kerr and Massimo Pallermo. I have been fortunate to travel to America, England and Europe to participate in calligraphy conferences where I studied with such masters as Denis Brown, Gottfied Pott, Sheila Waters and David Thornton. 

Penfriends Calligraphy Studio has grown into a space where students can borrow resource material from an extensive library, view calligraphy by various calligraphy masters and enjoy learning the ancient craft in pleasant, secure surroundings. Students are encouraged to experiment and extend their creativity.
