Georgia Angelopoulos

Canada

Georgia studied calligraphy early on with teachers from the British Arts & Crafts revival tradition. Her own interests in history, art and the continuation of tradition led to a degree in Art History. She is especially interested in the history of letters, manuscript techniques and materials and how they are used in the calligraphic tradition today. William Morris is a strong influence on Georgia’s work and outlook. He was a broad ranging and prolific designer, activist, poet and a visionary whose ideas and works underpinned the movement and the revival of calligraphy as taken up by Edward Johnston. Stepping back into history and tradition yields inspiration and pathways to present work for Georgia - it moves the art and craft forward in a meaningful and personal way.
