About this event

Books have for centuries reflected of the art and culture of society they are produced in, and this is particularly so of the beautiful illuminated manuscripts of the Medieval period in Europe.

In this one day workshop, create your own Illuminated letter using traditional techniques from the Middle Ages. Learn how to make paint from pigments and how to apply gold leaf to the painted initial. Templates for the letters will be provided but there will be an opportunity to add decoration and colours of the students own choosing.

No experience necessary. All levels welcome

Price includes buffet lunch and all materials.

Instruction by Rebecca Merry, MA(RCA). Courses will be taught in English but French also spoken.
