Organized in January 1984 and based in Orlando, Florida.


Our members come from all walks of life and include beginners, hobbyists and professionals alike.

Our purpose

is to promote the study and practice of calligraphy, but we also find an interest in many related arts such as bookmaking, embossing, rubber stamps, paper making, watercolor, origami, marbling, and many more.
