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.
Our 2018 Exhibition drew lots of interest and comments, and was a happy success, with all members exhibiting, whether beginner or those with many years experience. Some fun with letters is shown below, and we have a new Exhibition web page to show more of the work exhibited.
