Autumnal Inspiration

Summer is well and truly behind us and many of us are looking forward to, or have just started another year of calligraphy classes or workshops.

We asked for some ‘Autumnal Inspiration’ from South Wales Scribes members and we weren’t disappointed. Thank you to everyone who responded to our request for details of work on an Autumn theme.

The days are now noticeably shorter, the mornings are cooler and mistier and the natural world around us is changing colour – from summertime green to the amber, rust, chestnut and deep reds of Autumn.

Our autumnal collages feature a wide variety of creative work using different media for written hands, drawn lettering, illumination and gilding. We hope they provide you with some inspiration for your own ongoing work. One advantage of the longer, darker nights is perhaps more time to settle down to some creative calligraphy without the distraction of good weather or the smell of a BBQ outside!

We look forward to seeing everyone at the upcoming Members Meeting in Felindre on October 23rd. If you can make it please bring along physical examples of current work.
