"Four Seasons"
The Letters of Joy Calligraphy Conference, presented by Write On Calligraphers, will be held at Edmonds Community College, Lynnwood, WA, on Friday April 29, 2011 from 5:30pm–10pm and Saturday, April 30, 2011 from 8:00am to 6:00pm.

Letters of Joy is a popular, one-and-one-half day mini-conference starting on Friday evening with a reception, keynote address, and silent auction followed Saturday by a full day of classes designed to appeal to all levels of calligraphers and book and paper artists.

A hall of book and art supply vendors and a calligraphy exhibit round out the event. This year’s conference brings together seventeen experienced instructors, teaching everything from book and card making to a variety of calligraphic hands.

The highlight of the weekend is keynote speaker and featured instructor Pat Blair, White House Chief Calligrapher. 

Recognized as a Master Penman by the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting for her Spencerian and Roundhand script, Blair will take us behind the scenes with the keynote address “Pens and Protocol—Calligraphy of Official Washington”.
