Angular Letters Workshop

August 31 - 11:30 am - 4:00 pm

Angular Letters

Draw & Decorate Angular Letters

This is one of a series of five individual but related workshops with Sheila Smith that explore the many different ways to draw, illuminate and decorate historical capital letters. Each workshop will focus on a particular type of letter and a particular way to decorate so you can build up quite a substantial portfolio. These workshops are ideal for the experienced as well as those of you just starting out.

This session will explore how to draw and adapt to modern use the Angular letters used in early medieval manuscripts such as Lindisfarne Gospels and the Book of Kelly’s

All materials are supplied just bring yourselves and a notebook.
