What a busy month for South London Lettering. Saturday 19 th May we set up a stall at SSI Lay
Members’ Day. We put on display work from Founder Members of the association, samples of work
from more recent workshops including the beautiful mandala poster, our travelling book project
from 2017 and our brand new banner. We also had a table of all our 20 th anniversary merchandise
which proved to be very popular and the sales table was kept busy. Lots of visitors to the stand, lots
of interest shown and an interesting day for SLLA.
Sunday 20 th May was the Wayzgoose Fair at St Bride Foundation. This is an annual fund-raising event
aimed at printmakers, typographers and letter designers, with SLLA flying the flag for calligraphy and
lettering. The event is open to all and attracted a good number of visitors throughout the day. As
well as our sales table, we also had a demonstration table set up with paper and all kinds of pens for
members to showcase their skills and an invitation for visitors to ‘have a go’ which many of them did
during the course of the day. A successful day, rounding off a busy weekend.
Then on Tuesday 22 nd May, members were back at St Bride for a tour of the Foundation hosted by
Mick Clayton, one of the volunteers. As well as looking after the Foundation’s collections and
libraries, he also runs printing classes in the workshop. He talked about the history of the building
and the origins of the Foundation, took members on a tour of various parts of the building and
showed them some of the treasures held by the Foundation. An interesting and enjoyable evening
for everyone.
Now, let’s see what June brings for us…


Full reports on all the above events will appear in the next edition of The Inc.
