Mendip Calligraphy Group was formed in 1990; the membership now ranges from complete beginners to professional calligraphers.

Our aim is to increase understanding and appreciation of the art of calligraphy and to provide the opportunity for members to develop their individual skills and interests through regular workshops.

Members are kept in touch with the activities of the Group and informed of exhibitions and events with regular newsletters. The Group also mounts an exhibition of members’ work every two years in June or July.

Exhibition 2015

  This seemed to be a very successful venue as we had over 500 visitors.

We hope to be back there in 2017, see you then!


There are two regular workshops a month, one on Tuesday from 10.00am to 3.30pm and one on Saturday from 10am to 4pm, both at the Village Hall in Shipham . Workshops are led by our resident tutor, professional calligrapher Teresa Dunstone. These are held twice a month, on a Saturday and Tuesday, in Shipham Village Hall. The group also arranges specialised workshops during the year, led by guest tutors. Coffee/tea are provided but please bring a packed lunch.
Please see the Events page for the dates of these classes.

The Group also arranges specialised workshops during the year which are taken by professional calligraphers of national (and often of international) repute and will be at the Parish Rooms, Burrington.
