Illuminated Letters were used in medieval books to start important text passages. They ranged in style from simple coloured or gilded letters to small works of art enclosed within the initial. This workshop will offer instruction on medieval manuscript painting techniques (including gilding with real gold leaf). There will be examples of medieval initial letters to choose from or you can bring your own image to work from (max. 5” x 5”). Watercolour paper, gilding materials and a fine-tipped brush plus misc. materials and handouts provided. A supply list will be distributed with registration and available on ECFTA website.
