Society for Calligraphy, Southern California

Workshops

The SfC generally has five WORKSHOPS per year, usually a variety of the different calligraphy-related disciplines our members enjoy. We invite instructors from all over the country and the world who are part of the international calligraphic community, but we also invite instructors from our incredible local list.

Our five Regional Groups also organize all kinds of programs and workshops. Check the main Calendar listing for events in your area, or find the Regional representative in your area.

LOCATION: Workshop locations will be posted at the time of the workshop announcement.

HOURS: Lectures/demos are Saturday, 9:00 to 10:30 am and are open to the public at no cost. Workshops are Saturday, 11:00 am to 5:30 pm with a half hour lunch and Sunday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm with an hour lunch and are open to paid members only, reserved in advance.

COST: Unless otherwise noted, the cost of a Two Day Workshop is $120, plus lunch. One-day workshops cost $60 plus lunch. 4-Hour Mini-workshops are $20 plus lunch and are open to the public. Materials fees may be payable to the instructor and are paid on the first day of class.

REFUNDS: If you cancel at any time and your spot can be filled from the wait list, a full refund is issued. If you cancel more than 45 days in advance and your spot cannot be filled before the workshop, your fee will be refunded, minus $25. No refunds for cancellations within 45 days of the workshop, if the spot cannot be filled. If you must cancel, please allow sufficient time so your place can be filled.

ELIGIBILITY: Workshops are open to current paid SfC members only (except mini-workshops). You must be a paid member of SfC at sign-up as well as the time the workshop is held. Your space will not be reserved for you until your dues are paid. If your dues are not current, you become ineligible to take the class and your space will be filled from the waiting list.

REGISTRATION: Enrollment is limited to 20 or fewer per workshop. Sign-ups and checks are accepted at any time in advance on a first-come, first-served basis. Your check will be cashed upon receipt. Supply lists and any last minute information will be sent by e-mail.

CONTACT INFO: Send registration forms with your check (payable to SfC) to: Kristi Darwick, 2455 Oakleaf Canyon Dr., Walnut, CA 91789-3435.
