A New Calligraphy Year Begins 
Our first meeting of 2013 is coming up on Tuesday 5th February at 6.30pm, the venue is the Embroiderer's room, 48 Windmill Road, Epsom. Jan Leonard is taking us through Italic variations and it is the first of a stepped plan so you do not want to miss the beginning. You will need to bring the basics, an assortment of broad edged nibs, a nib holder or pen, practise ink, zeta paper A4 or A3, a ruler, pencil, blotting paper and a perhaps a lint free cloth for wiping the nib. There is the usual fee for the evening of $5.00. Look forward to getting back to good habits and catching up with what members have been doing.

We have received an urgent request from Larissa McMillan - please contact her directly.

Is it possible to hire a tall (shoulder/head height) calligraphy brush from any members? It is for a professional calligrapher to use, for a commercial advertising the NZSO orchestra – Tan Dun series. It will be shot in Wellington. Please if you can help, if you could contact me as soon as you can, (we shoot beginning of Jan 2013) We will pay for hireage.

Thanks you very much for your time,
Larissa McMillan
