Founded in 1976, the Washington Calligraphers Guild is a nonprofit organization of more than 500 U.S. and international lettering artists of all skill levels, from professional scribes to enthusiastic beginners and non-calligraphers who appreciate the lettering and book arts.
The Washington Calligraphers Guild deeply mourns the death of SHEILA WATERS, first president and founding member of WCG. Please continue here.
In the photo, taken at the 25th Anniversary Exhibition opening in 2001, Sheila Waters displays a document she lettered in 1976 that invited calligraphers to join as charter members of the Guild.
