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!
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.
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.
Next GLA workshop:

Our February workshop with Celia Lister had us getting creative and expressive with lettering, using a variety of tools. We then cut and folded the sheet into a four-page book and slipcase. It was so pleasing to see the results. Everyone had an original book to take home and add words to later.
