A beautiful early summer’s day saw 8 calligraphers from SLLA gather at St George’s Church in
Bloomsbury for our second Silent Calligraphy event, organised by Eva Driskell. After the heat and
traffic outside, the scribes were happy to be in the coolness offered by the church. Everyone set up
their ‘desk’ and quickly got to work. Not much chatting, but lots of scratching from busy pens as
people worked on their travelling book pages or individual projects. Visitors to the church were able
to see what was going on but no one disturbed us. A great opportunity to sit and concentrate on one’s
calligraphy for a few hours without interruption.
A full report of this event will appear in the next issue of the Inc.

    I have just watched the BBC 4 documentary The Secret History of Writing and loved the idea of the Silent Calligraphy event. Having searched to find others, l see that you have held similar. Will you be holding another in 2022 by any chance please?
    Thank you
