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.

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 all had an extremely busy day for our second workshop with Dee Howley Gibbs in April, this time examining Italic Capitals and how to use them in our calligraphy. Great fun. Some of our efforts are shown below:-
Our next meeting will be on Saturday 18 May 2019
