Gloucestershire Lettering Arts - Words, Meanings, Interpretation, Variety, Fun Copyright © All rights reserved.

About the Group

Gloucestershire Lettering Arts (GLA - incorporating Glevum Scribes) is a non-profit making, Cotswold-based society for calligraphy enthusiasts, offering an arena for professionals, committed amateurs and newcomers to enjoy the many and varied aspects of the lettering arts of today.

Welcome to Gloucestershire Lettering Arts!

Our Aim

GLA aims to raise the level of awareness of calligraphy, lettering and the book arts. These expressive art forms - graphically interpreting thoughts and ideas, invariably convey meaning before words are actually read.

Our Workshops

We run monthly workshops at Highnam Community Hall, usually in the Gambier-Parry Hall and we have an interesting varied programme for the coming year.

Some results of our latest workshop in January when David Simons showed us how to combine different styles of writing and motifs to produce

energetic work suited to short quotes and display pieces. An enjoyable day with Dave allowing us to break lots of calligraphic rules … shhh!
