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.
2020 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 held our AGM on 7th followed by a lovely shared buffet meal which we all enjoyed. A 'secret Santa' type of Christmas card exchange was organised and was a great success. Some wonderful cards were produced - well done everyone! (shown below - click on any to see full image)
Our next meetings will be on
Saturday 18th January 2020 &
Saturday 15th February 2020
Untutored Practice Days
The first two meetings at West Country Scribes will be friendly get-together days where, in the company of fellow members, we can practice hands or techniques from previous workshops, or develop our own calligraphic projects. Members will be present to give help and support to newcomers and beginners.
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.
