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 will be at Ilminster, 11-30 October 2021.
Stay safe everyone, and keep scribing!
At our last meeting, Dee Howley Gibbs led us in an exploration of Art Deco calligraphy and patterning. Some of our efforts are shown below.
We regret that it is still not possible to re-commence monthly workshop meetings yet. With "Lockdown" easing, the earliest date to resume would seem to be June 2021.
We will resume our workshops as soon as possible in 2021, and when confirmed, we will notify all members and update our website programme. We will take all measures possible to reduce risk.
