Lingfield Scribes welcome new members to join our small friendly group.

We aim to share the skills and enjoyment of calligraphy with everyone.

In a highly complex technological world, learning to write with a sqare edged pen and ink is an exploration as you go from simple strokes to form the letters of a classical script.  A satisfying & inspiring feeling comes from learning a new skill.
