Nib ‘n’ Inks, located in Olympia, Washington, is a not-for-profit social organization dedicated to the art of beautiful writing.  We also have a shared interest in the related fields of art, paper crafts and book arts.  We range in expertise from interested beginners to professionals.  We meet monthly to learn new techniques, share ideas and interact with others who share a common love for letters and the paper arts.

Nib ‘n’ Inks sponsors periodic workshops and meeting programs presented by members of the guild and professionals from the greater art world.  Each spring, we sponsor a month-long members show to share our love of calligraphy with the public.  

Members of Nib ‘n’ Inks strive to develop discipline in achieving excellence in letterforms.  It is our mission to have fun, to learn and improve our skills, and to foster an appreciation and respect for the handwritten word.
