Mendip Calligraphy Group was formed in 1990.

Our aim is to increase the understanding and appreciation of the art and craft of calligraphy and all forms of lettering art.

We provide the opportunity for members to develop their individual skills and interests through regular workshops.

Every two years we mount an exhibition of members work at Wells and Mendip Museum.

We welcome new members of all abilities.


Workshops take place every month (except August) alternating between Tuesday and Saturday at Shipham Village Hall –

BS25 1SG –

Workshops are full day and run from 10am to 3.30pm on Tuesdays and from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays with a break for lunch.

All workshops are led by our resident tutor, professional calligrapher Teresa Dunstone.

We do not work to a syllabus so each individual can work at their own pace with as much support and guidance from our professional as they need.

In addition to the regular monthly workshops we also organise occasional one-day special workshops.   These take place on a Saturday and are topic based led by an invited tutor, often a professional calligrapher of national/international repute.


The annual subscription is £15.00 per year and falls due on 1st September. Your membership card entitles you to discounts, please ask for more details. We welcome new members of all abilities.

Please contact us using the telephone number or email address below. If using email it would be helpful if you could include a phone number as a few of our replies have bounced and we were unable to contact the sender. We do reply to all enquiries that we receive!
