Illuminated Letter Workshop
Sunday 22 May
in two 2-hour sessions: 10am-12pm then 1pm-3.30pm
10 May 2022
Enjoy learning the skills of applying gold leaf with exquisite effect and painting with gouache using a fine brush to create your own illuminated initial.
You'll be carefully guided through the process of tracing down, gilding, decorating and detailing to produce a beautifully finished handmade letter.
We will be working on letters from a Renaissance style known as White Vine.
Suitable for all levels of ability.
The workshop will be live online via Zoom in two 2-hour sessions with an hour's lunch break.
• The morning runs from 10am to noon
• The afternoon runs from 1pm to 3pm
• A further 30-minute session for questions and sharing will round off the day
This course requires you to download the free Zoom app. A link to join the class will be sent near the date.
Video recordings of the sessions will be made available to download for a limited time.
As the materials and tools for this project are specialist and varied, I am offering a kit containing pre-cut paper, tracedown, gold size, gold leaf, gouache, brushes, plus other items you'll need. The box of materials costs £15 including postage in the UK (extra for overseas).
Last orders for kits in the UK is this SATURDAY 14th to make sure they arrive in time.
