Christmas Club Day (via Zoom)

December 12, 2020 at 11:00 am - 1:30 pm


Ewan Clayton, renowned calligrapher, teacher and writer is our guest speaker for this year’s virtual Christmas Club Day. Ewan will be giving us the ‘world premiere’ of his presentation The Golden Thread and the Missing Illustrations!  Ewan, the author of The Golden Thread, a history of writing, had hoped to more fully illustrate his book but was restricted in the number of photos he could use as well as being limited to black and white images. In this talk he will share with us some of the photos (coloured, of course) he would have loved to include. Ewan will speak and take questions for about an hour – between 11am and 12 noon.

After Ewan’s talk there will be a Show and Tell session – an opportunity for members to show their Christmas-related calligraphy projects, eg cards, larger pieces of calligraphy or other items on which calligraphy is a main feature. The only limit is what you can show via the camera on your laptop/tablet/mobile phone. 


If you would like to join us for Ewan’s presentation and/or the sharing activity afterwards please drop Ruth Newman an email to reserve a place.Ruth can be contacted on chair@oxfordscribes.co.uk  There is no limit on numbers (and no charge for the day) but we’d appreciate knowing many members to expect on the day, and how many would like to share (and maybe say a few words about) their Christmas Calligraphic Creations.
