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.
Our Next Exhibition at Ilminster has been postponed to October 2021.
Stay safe everyone, and keep scribing!
In October Dee Howley Gibbs came to lead us in an exploration of Art Deco calligraphy and patterning. Some of our efforts are shown below.
January 1st 2021
We regret there will be no scheduled workshops while Somerset is under Tier 4 restrictions.
We will resume our workshops as soon as possible in 2021. When permitted to hold meeting days, we will take all measures possible to reduce risk.
