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.
Tutored workshop days are £30 for members, £40 for non-members.
To book any workshop or contact us with any enquiry, please use the form on our "Contact Us" page.
Our exhibition at Ilminster in May was very well received. Click on our website page Exhibition 2023 to see some of the works shown.

Untutored Practice Day
Untutored Practice Days are popular get-together days where we meet up, practice scripts or develop our own calligraphy projects. On this day we are also reviewing our programme for 2024 so both current members and prospective members will have an opportunity to influence and propose any changes, so please join us if you can.
If you are interested in joining our group, please contact us and we can give fuller details. New members are always welcome.
