We are glad that you found us!

The Nashville Calligraphers Guild was formed in 1981 to foster the continued study, practice, and use of calligraphy among its members and to encourage community awareness of the art of calligraphy. To this end, the Guild meets five times a year, publishes a newsletter, and sponsors workshops and related activities.

Our Guild consists of approximately 80 members from Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. Meetings are held five times each year. Visitors are always welcome to all meetings.


The Nashville Calligraphers Guild meets five times each year at Plaza Artist Materials in downtown Nashville, 633 Middleton Avenue, Nashville, TN 37203. Meetings are held the second Saturday in September, November, January, March and May. Each meeting consists of a meet-and-greet time, business meeting, and a program related to some facet of calligraphy.

The Guild also offers workshops four to five times each year led either by one of the Guild’s own very talented calligraphers or by a nationally-known lettering artist.

We welcome anyone who has an interested in the lettering arts. Take a look around our web site, and join us at our next meeting!


Membership is open to anyone interested in calligraphy. Dues are $30 per year for a regular membership, $40 a year for a contributing membership. Membership inquiries and dues should be directed to Laura Kraft.
