CLAS



Calligraphy & Lettering Arts Society

Writing and lettering are everywhere around us and are a very visual part of the fabric of our everyday lives. The study of writing and lettering and the practice and finest execution of its skills can be carried to the highest levels of art. The art and cultures of China, Japan and the Islamic world place the value of their calligraphy on the highest plane. Historically, the Roman alphabet in the richness of its manifestations has a pedigree second to none. The origins go back into prehistory and ever since that amazing breakthrough into literacy, people have been getting and giving aesthetic pleasure by marrying their inventiveness and imagination with the limitless creative potential of the raw material, the letters of the alphabet. It is not only the content of the words but the way they have looked which has carried culture forwards.

About the Society
CLAS membership is open to calligraphers of all levels. It publishes an A4 colour magazine, The EDGE, 5 times a year, holds an annual Summer School (the CLAS Festival of Calligraphy) for it's members and, once a year in different parts of the country, promotes the CLAS Regional Day with exhibitions, sales and demonstrations. Members work entered for the Art & The Letter Exhibition is displayed at the CLAS AGM in March at the British Library. Members are sent details of meetings, study days, exhibitions, and masterclasses arranged by CLAS and other organisations. The CLAS Ladder of Progress includes the National Diploma in Calligraphy at 3 levels and the Certificate of Calligraphy for those who want to improve their calligraphy.
