** Rokkehealden Scriptorium
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 (per say) is you be active,
encouraging, positive to others and yourself.
