I trained as a traditional calligrapher at Reigate 30 years ago. I have had lots of experience with all types of commissions, from Freedom Scrolls, family trees and memorial work. I am able to gild and work on vellum.
I also teach with Exeter Lettterers and Plymouth Calligraphers, and am willing to give local talks and demonstrations or lessons.
I love to write and have lots of imagination. Now living on Dartmoor I have plenty of inspiration for forthcoming pieces of work. I enjoy partaking in local and national exhibitions.
I have a website which is Ruthsutherlandcall.wixsite.com/rscalligraphy or on instagram which is Ruth_sutherland_calligraphy
I have produced writing on wedding stationary, envelopes, Freedom Scrolls, memorial work and family trees, I love producing bespoke work with poems and quotes allowing my imagine to do what it loves. I have produced lettering for a book cover too. I am a member of CLAS and SSI and belong to Devon Artists Network, Plymouth Calligraphers and Exeter Letterers.
I have worked for Ashburton and Exeter City Council, Molten Brown, Exeter Museum, F G Marshall, Various Parish Councils and many private clients
