About Glasgow Scribes Meetings

Saturday 2nd September: Bring, Tell & Ask
Members and visitors of the Glasgow Scribes will be bringing something calligraphic they want to tell or ask about. It could be a calligraphy masterpiece or work in progress, a tool, a material, a book, a magazine article, a skill, a technique, a question, an idea! The morning will be informal and full of calli chat and sharing. Come and join us!

Saturday 7th October: Creating A Map
Ted Gardner will be showing members and visitors how to create a map with drawn images, calligraphy writing, borders and colour. The morning will be instructive and practical with several map examples on display.

Saturday 4th November: Handling Numbers
Members and visitors of the Glasgow Scribes will be learning and sharing how to handle numbers in calligraphic work. The morning will be practical and informative as everyone practices and improves an area of calligraphy which can seem daunting.

Saturday 2nd December: Islamic Geometry
Douglas McEwen will be showing participants how to create an 8 fold rosette as an example of geometric patterns which appear in Islamic art and architecture and everyday objects - carpets, tilework, stonework, stained glass, woodwork, metalwork, building decoration, etc.
