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.
For full 2018 Programme: click here
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 large turnout and very busy workshop in September when Marion McKenzie came to lead a day on Uncials - both regular and flat-angled. Exhausting fun! Some of our efforts can be seen below
