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. Meetings are held in Rockwell Green Village Hall, Popes Lane, Wellington, Somerset TA21 9BU. Our meetings are open to members and non-members, but booking is essential.
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.
We started to choose a "word of the month" and bring a piece of calligraphy using that word. At our last meeting in February, the word was Pandemonium. Examples shown below
Sadly, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have had to postpone ALL workshops on our programme until further notice when Government restrictions are eased.
Step Up Your Italics with Josie Brown is now re-scheduled for 21 November 2020, when we hope it can go ahead. Mark L'Argent has agreed to come to us in September 2021 to teach Legende.
Our Next Exhibition at Ilminster has been postponed to May 2021.
Stay safe everyone, and keep scribing!
If any members wish to cheer others up by sending images of their recent calligraphy efforts to be posted on this website, they will be displayed on this home page. Send to Carole Webster please.
