Organiser

Society of Scribes & Illuminators

The Society of Scribes and Illuminators

The Society of Scribes and Illuminators, based in the UK, is one of the most established and well-respected calligraphy societies in the world.

The SSI was founded in 1921 in the UK by early students of Edward Johnston with the aim of advancing the crafts of writing and illumination. Today it is the international focus for professional calligraphers and enthusiastic amateurs, drawing its membership from the United Kingdom, Ireland, continental Europe, the USA and Canada, Australia and New Zealand, South Africa and the Far East.

The SSI is and has always been a non-profit organisation. There are no owners, no shareholders, no external investors, and all profits are 100% reinvested for future activities of the Society.

For committed students with a high level of ability, the Society runs an Advanced Training Scheme which comprises two weekends a year for three years with a team of six Fellows as tutors. Through set projects, critiques and discussion, the development of a personal direction is encouraged. This is the only scheme in the UK at this level outside full time education and in recent years it has helped to produce several new Fellows for the Society.

Many of the Society’s members teach and lecture in continuing, higher and adult education.
