Bridger Mountain Scribes

The Bridger Mountain Scribes of Montana comprises calligraphers in southwest Montana, including Bozeman and Gallatin Gateway. We meet once a month to discuss calligraphy, artists books, and other book arts, usually on the 1st Monday of the month at the Bozeman Public Library.


We are a member guild of the statewide Montana guild, Big Sky Scribes. If you’d like to find out more about calligraphy in southwest Montana, attend our meetings, or join the guild, email

April 2016 meeting

Our next meeting will be held from 11 am – 1 pm on Monday, April 3, in the small conference room at the library.  

In preparation for the April meeting:

Let’s get some serious work done on our year-long project. Be prepared to bring sketches, drafts, in-progress pages, complete pages, any problems with project that you’d like to discuss with the group. Also, bring anything else you’ve been working on.

Rose, Justine, Donna, and Beth will have just returned from the Big Sky Scribes spring workshop, taught by Amity Parks, entitled “A Sharp Pencil and a Keen Eye”. One of us will lead the group in an exercise we will have done in that workshop. We’ll provide a supplies list about a week before our meeting, but expect it to consist mostly of paper and pencil.

Amity Parks will teach her workshop at the Big Sky Scribes spring workshop in Great Fall, March 25-26.
