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.
We started to choose a "word of the month" and bring a piece of calligraphy using that word. At our last meeting in February, the word was Pandemonium. Examples shown below
Stay safe everyone, and keep scribing!
If any members wish to cheer others up by sending images of their recent calligraphy efforts to be posted on this website, they will be displayed on this home page. Send to Carole Webster please.

Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, we are going to try and resume our programme of workshops while we can.
We will start with a member-only untutored practice day on 19 September. Booking with our secretary before arrival is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL, and numbers may be restricted by government imposed regulations.
