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.
In June we had a packed workshop day Embossing with Jan Pickett. Many thanks Jan for a great day. So many exciting techniques and ideas to try out! Some of our efforts are shown below. (Apologies for any I missed out, where the embossed shadows could not be seen when taking photos)
Our summer meeting workshop days will be on:
Saturday 20 July 2019 and
Saturday 17 August 2019
10.00am - 4.00pm
Untutored Practice Days
These popular self-guided days, without a tutor, give us time to get together and re-visit hands and skills from previous workshops or develop our own projects, in a friendly and supportive atmosphere; sharing ideas and skills.
