Membership




Members live in and around Glasgow and even as far as Ayrshire, Central region, Fife and Edinburgh.  So despite our name "Glasgow Scribes" anyone who is interested in calligraphy and can travel to our meetings and workshops in Glasgow is very welcome to visit us/join us

Each member has different interests and experience in calligraphy.  Some are fairly new to calligraphy having learned at classes or on a self taught basis, others have many years of practicing the art.  Calligraphic interests include - different scripts (e.g Roundhand, Italics, etc), gilding, small bookmaking, using different art media, silk painting and so on.  These interests contribute to a wealth of calligraphy experience which can be shared amongst members and also include a common enthusiasm for the relaxing, amazing, diverse and engrossing art form
