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.
Our Next Exhibition at Ilminster has been postponed to October 2021.
Stay safe everyone, and keep scribing!
In October we enjoyed our first tutored workshop since lockdown. Dee Howley Gibbs came to lead us in an exploration of Art Deco calligraphy and patterning. Some of our efforts are shown below.
We regret our next workshop on Sat 21 November 2020 with Josie Brown must be cancelled due to the lockdown. It was also decided to defer the AGM, scheduled soon afterwards on 5th December, and hold a meeting at an early opportunity next year when coronavirus restrictions and fears ease.
We will resume our workshops as soon as possible - hopefully January 2021. We will take all measures possible to reduce risk.
