Welcome!

The Portland Society for Calligraphy was founded by Lloyd Reynolds and a group of his students after a long alliance with the Society for Italic Handwriting in England. We were first known as the Western American Branch of the Society for Italic Handwriting, one of the oldest calligraphy guilds in the United States.

Formed in 1969 and incorporated as a non-profit in 1973, we support Lloyd Reynolds’ vision: “Through study, understanding, and critical practice, let us promote this healthy arts and crafts movement.”

We offer an extensive workshop program 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 the Menucha Retreat Center in the beautiful Columbia Gorge. The Guild also exhibits members’ artwork in an annual non-juried show.
