The Scriptorium is composed of all skill levels. The Scriptorium is open to anyone who is interested
in any aspect of the scribal arts. You do NOT have to be a member of the shire to participate in the
Scriptorium. You don't have to be an artist. You don't have to paint. You don't have to draw. You don't
even have to do calligraphy. Experiment and do what you like. You don't have to buy anything. We are a
friendly group and share our supplies. Of course, if you get hooked like we did, you'll want to get your own
supplies. From time to time we hold classes to teach various aspects of calligraphy and illumination. About
the only request is that you be active, encouraging, positive to others and yourself.
