Join us!

The Nashville Calligraphers Guild is based in Nashville, TN, with members from various parts of the U.S. participating. Membership is open to anyone interested in calligraphy regardless of skill level or expertise.

Our annual membership dues are $30 per year for a regular membership. Membership dues are for a membership year that runs from June 1 – May 31. New members are welcome to join at any time during a membership year, but all memberships are retroactive to the beginning of a given membership year. (As an example, a person who joins NCG in May will be entitled to all the publications for the current membership year but must renew on June 1.)

We offer workshop programs aimed at all levels of skill. Our teachers include internationally renowned calligraphers as well as local talent. We sponsor an annual weekend retreat during the month of February at Lake Barkley State Resort, Kentucky. The Guild also exhibits members’ artwork in annual non-juried shows.
