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.
We had a wonderful day with Jan Mehigan in July gilding and exploring decorative letters. Our thanks to Jan for a very enjoyable day with lots of ideas and tips. (Some examples of work in progress below)
Our next calligraphy workshop will be on
Saturday 16 September 2017
Rachel Yallop will lead a workshop on
Ruling Pens, Folded Pens, and Cola Pens - making and using them to create beautiful calligraphy.
