As medieval combat students, we are always referring to the manuscripts of the medieval period, but how were they actually made and how long did it take to create a page or image? Now you can find out first hand.
We have Julia Baxter, an experienced calligrapher and illuminator coming to run a hands on workshop at the fechtschule.
This is an opportunity to work through the process of medieval illumination working towards a finished letter of your choice with colour paints and gold leaf. We also plan to draw weaponised medieval bunnies.
Beginning with an initial tracing, laying gold size, applying real gold leaf and building colour paints we will work in the same order as the medieval illuminators. We will work with a pre-designed capital letter. Tools and materials are included. Suitable for all.
£30 per head (includes all materials) at St Dunstans Church Hall, Canterbury on the 19th February 2022 1pm – 4pm.
Tea, Coffee and Biscuits will be provided.
