About the Society

The New Zealand Calligraphers has been an organisation since the early 1990’s.
The society meets monthly at a central location in Auckland, conducts regular workshops in calligraphy and complementary arts, organises exhibitions, and generally supports and promotes calligraphy and excellence in lettering.

The New Zealand Calligrapher’s members include professional lettering artists, commercial calligraphers, illustrators and designers, tutors and hobbyists and their interests range from the most traditional types of calligraphy, to contemporary and experimental forms.

We invite you to browse this site – which contains information about our society, membership, current events, workshops and other relevant topics – and to consider joining the New Zealand Calligraphers.
