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.

At our March workshop with Vivien Lunniss we each created a limp vellum binding using that versatile building material Tyvek! Coloured with acrylic inks, the bindings were wrapped around our hand-sewn blocks and tied with leather laces.
