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 [see 2017 Programme], and we exhibit our work every alternate year. Our October 2016 exhibition proved a great success, demonstrating a wide range of calligraphy techniques and creative styles.
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 thanks to Marion McKenzie for an absorbing and demanding workshop on Half Uncials which still managed to be very friendly and great fun; always so enjoyable with Marion. Some photos are given below.
Our next calligraphy workshop will be on
Saturday 18 March 2017
when we will be welcoming James Farrell on his first visit to our group to lead a workshop on
at Rockwell Green Church Hall, Wellington TA21 9BU.
