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.
Regrettably, our main exhibition at Ilminster Arts Centre has been postponed to 2023.
Membership fees for the year commencing January 2022 will remain at £25. Tutored workshop days will be £30 for members, and £40 for non-members.
15th January & 19th February 2022
Untutored Practise Days
Friendly get-together days where we can practise hands, techniques and our own projects in the company of fellow calligraphers.
We have a full programme for 2022, (see our web page Programme 2022) and we look forward to welcoming newcomers. We can help beginners start this engrossing art form, please contact us for information.
To book any workshop, please contact the Secretary Bee Ottway on 01458 830172 or email email@example.com, or use the form on our "Contact Us" page.
