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. Many of our workshops are suitable for beginners; please enquire using our contact form if interested, or click on the email icon at the bottom of this page, and we will phone you back. You can be assured of a warm welcome with plenty of encouragement and support.
We have a full programme for 2023, (click here for copy). We look forward to welcoming newcomers to our group.
Tutored workshop days are £30 for members, £40 for non-members.
To book any workshop, please contact our Secretary Bee Ottway on 01458 830172 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the form on our "Contact Us" page.

Paddle Pens, wide writing implenments made from balsa wood, are easy to make and use and give wonderful effects and textures to add to your calligraphy. Gillian King will lead us through this fascinating and practical workshop. Newcomers to calligraphy are welcome.
