Lettering artist, illustrator, the founder of 'Online Scriptorium'

Hello! My name is Dina Ruzha and I am the founder of an international community ‘Online Scriptorium’. I have been hosting the meetings since the lockdown to support our community.

Now we have got more than 600 members, and 22 speakers have already given talks.

Our events

Everyone is welcome!

Online public talks
We are excited to announce that starting on April 11th 2020, we will begin to bring our friends together for a series of virtual public talks.

We have invited designers, calligraphers, lettering artists to show you their work, where they work, and why they do what they do so expertly and exceptionally well. In doing so, Online Scriptorium wants to bring together people who love calligraphy, typography, and to inspire them to research, experiment, write, create.
Online lectures

Our mission is to share knowledge about the history of calligraphy and lettering, to inspire, inform, and unleash new calligraphy talent upon the world. You can study online with our instructors at any convenient time for you.
