We met for our May meeting last Saturday and had John Ward as our guest tutor for the day. John (far left in picture) is a lovely chap from Bolton who teaches calligraphy in the local area and has been to visit us as a guest tutor for a few years now. Our day was spent looking at Stephen Raw inspired capitals (see link to Stephen Raw website).

We were honoured that John brought with him some of the wonderful pieces of calligraphy that his wife Margaret Daubney had created before she sadly passed away last year. As a group we were devestated at the loss of Margaret, she had visited us as a tutor a couple of times and she was an amazing inspiration to us all.
