Exhibition of Calligraphy and Lettering at Swansea Museum

The South Wales Scribes will hold their first exhibition of calligraphy and lettering at Swansea Museum from the 20th February until the 23rd April 2016. There will also be the opportunity for the very first time in Wales to view the ‘Letters After Lindisfarne’ volumes which comprise over 200 original pages of unique lettering from individuals in regional groups on loan from the International Research Centre for Calligraphy at the University of Sunderland. The exhibition will be officially opened by Marion McKenzie the Chair of the Calligraphy Lettering Arts Society.

The four volumes of the ‘Letters After Lindisfarne’ will be available to look through every Tuesday between 10am and 1pm and Saturdays from 11am until 4pm for the duration of the exhibition.

South Wales Scribes is a regional group for people interested in calligraphy and lettering arts established in 2012.  We welcome members from across South Wales from professionals to enthusiastic amateurs and those just starting out in calligraphy.  Our aim is to ensure that everyone develops their calligraphy skills and that they have great fun doing so, consequently we enjoy working together and supporting each other as we learn.

We meet at the Glais Senior Citizens Pavilion in Swansea.  We usually have five to six meetings a year, four workshops with external tutors well known in the calligraphy world and two meetings led by members where we work together, including our annual general meeting.

Membership is currently £15 per year. Workshop costs can vary but are around £25 for the day.  For more information, please contact swscribes1@gmail.com.

South Wales Scribes is a non-profit making organisation and is affiliated to the Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society.
