Greater Cincinnati Calligraphers' Guild


Established in 1980 for the enjoyment and practice of calligraphy, the Greater Cincinnati Calligraphers Guild encourages members to develop and use their skills through meetings with fellow scribes, workshops with international artists and exhibits.

The three founders, Marlene Steele, Karen McMannon and Marlene Boas, introduced the Greater Cincinnati Calligraphers Guild to Cincinnati at Summerfair in 1980. Through its vibrant programming, the Guild encourages members to explore and enjoy the spirit of the handwritten letter and related arts; including gilding, illumination and papercraft.
