61st Annual IAMPETH Convention

August 9-14, 2010. Hilton at the Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, Florida

The International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting (IAMPETH) is an international, non-profit association dedicated to practicing and preserving the beautiful arts of calligraphy, engrossing, and fine penmanship.

The IAMPETH Annual Convention offers a selection of half-day and full-day classes taught by expert instructors. Digital projectors are used so that you can see the instructor’s hand at work even from the back of the room. The convention is held in a hotel. The modest conference fee covers the instruction only. You make your own arrangements for lodging and meals. See the website for info on the $111 night rooms at the hotel (these rooms are limited; make your reservation with the hotel early). The $111 room rate is $99 plus approx taxes. Some classes may have a materials fee. There are classes on both pointed pen and broad-edged pen alphabets and on illumination.
