Way back when I started my calligraphy journey in January 2014, I started searching for workshops and associations. South London Lettering Association came up early in my search, and, as I’m based in the area, it seemed a logical step to join such an avid community of letterers.
I’ve since realised, though, that it’s not a geographically inclined organisation: anyone is welcome, and, while the workshops are held in Southfields, many of the exhibitions are held centrally in London. At one of my first workshops with Joy Daniels, I got chatting with one of SLLA’s committee members and offered any help. With my background in web content management, we quickly worked out that a new website was in order.
So, after seven months of on-off building in my spare time, I’m very proud to have launched the new website for SLLA, and look forward to continuing to support them in growing their community of artists and enthusiasts. I’ve received some lovely feedback, which, as a long-time web nerd keen to make people’s time finding what they need more enjoyable, is very rewarding:
I must say I really love the new SLLA website it’s so contemporary, fresh looking and easy to navigate – layout and pictures are excellent! I love the pop of the SLLA colour ‘blue’.
Please take a look, and why not join the association for lots of great calligraphy and lettering info.
