Welcome to the West Country Scribes website
We are a small and friendly calligraphy group who meet near Wellington, Taunton, Somerset, aiming to develop our own skills and encourage calligraphy locally. We are affiliated to the Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society [CLAS].
We hold regular workshops through the year [see 2017 Programme], and we exhibit our work every alternate year. Our October 2016 exhibition proved a great success, demonstrating a wide range of calligraphy techniques and creative styles.
We welcome new members who would like to take the opportunity of developing their calligraphy and exploring what is possible in this absorbing skill. You can be assured of a warm welcome with plenty of encouragement.
Wow! What a busy day we had with Jan Pickett in her Letters Unlimited workshop: shadows, 3-D effects, stained glass letters and all kinds of colour, tone and decoration to give letters added Joie de Vivre! Many thanks Jan: so many good ideas.
Our next calligraphy workshop will be
Gilding on Saturday 16 July 2017
when Jan Mehigan will be showing us how to work with gold (for full details click here)
Venue: Rockwell Green Church Hall, Popes Lane, Wellington TA21 9BU.
