Welcome to Capital City Scribes!

CCS celebrates 35 years in 2018!

Capital City Scribes (CCS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing in the appreciation of, and providing education in the art of calligraphy. Fostering both community and personal growth through the art of beautiful writing, CCS is open to all who believe in its purpose. 


 

Capital City Scribes started out as a search for a bottle of ink. Thelma Matthews carried ink at the University of Texas CO-Op East Book Store and in October of 1982, Thelma invited all the calligraphers she knew to attend an informal gathering at the bookstore. It was at that meeting and three follow-up meetings that Paula Webb, Thelma, Jeff Jeffreys, Nicholas Yeager and others began formulating the guild's purpose. The guild was established on January 11, 1983.

 

Thank you for your interest in CCS!
