Cover by Thea Macqueen – To create this piece Thea placed torn paper on the watercolour paper and sprayed diluted blue Parker ink and diluted walnut ink to form the sea and sand. The text was written with a pointed nib and white gouache.

Quillo Talk is the newsletter of the Calligraphers’ Guild of WA’s monthly newsletter and is distributed to our members by email as a PDF. Country and city members who are unable to attend meetings rely on the newsletter for up to date information on the happenings within the Guild. The newsletter also provides information on upcoming workshops, exhibitions and other calligraphy based articles and events,

Each month the front cover is designed by a different Guild member giving all members a chance to use and display their creative talents. Members have the option to have their birthday date published in the Quillo to encourage the exchange of handmade cards, which are often brought and displayed at meetings.

Workshops are an important part of the Guild and Quillo Talk contains reports on recent workshops written by members who have participated.
