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, and we exhibit our work every alternate year.
Our next exhibition will be held at Taunton Library from Monday 1st October to 1.00pm on Saturday 13th October 2018.

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.
On July 21st a good day was had by all, when Mary Noble led a creative, busy and great fun workshop on contemporary ways to incorporate gold into our work. Much exploring and experimenting with modern art materials! Some of our efforts can be seen below
