Recent Pen Dragons Workshops

Pen Dragons has always prided itself on bringing top instructors to the Kalamazoo area for workshops on various calligraphic hands and techniques.


Spotlights are mini-workshops (1-day or less) for current and prospective Guild members. They are designed for beginning calligraphers and Guild members who would like a quick refresher in a calligraphic hand or technique. Calligraphers who might be accomplished in other styles may wish to sample a new script or application at a Spotlight.

Spotlight instructors are often members of the Guild themselves who have skills they are willing to share.

Pen Dragons generally offers one or two of these opportunities per year. There are none currently scheduled for the remainder of 2019.

Financial assistance may be available for Guild members for up to half of workshop or spotlight tuition; limits apply. Contact Pen Dragons for more information. Scholarship policies are under review by the Board of Directors at this time.
