|Welcome to the Coastal Calligraphers Guild! Started in September of 2001, our home base is Sarasota, Florida and our members come from many areas along the Gulf Coast. We're composed of beginners through professionals in calligraphy and the related arts. Our purpose is to promote the art of calligraphy and related arts for all persons who share the love of them, and to offer educational programs for the immediate and surrounding communities. Please visit our website Coastal Calligraphers Guild | Sarasota, Florida for more information or to become a member.|

Mini-workshops will be offered free of charge at the general meetings which will be held on the first Sundays in February, June, and October.
