About
The Calligraphic Arts Guild of Toronto (CAGT) was founded in 1974 by Calligrapher Alf Ebsen and incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 1975. A resident group at NPCC for almost 20 years, CAGT has continued to provide opportunities for the study of calligraphy, its history, cultural traditions and application for all ages through classes, workshops and exhibitions.
