Illuminated Letters

All that shines is Gold in Creative Catalyst’s Illuminated Letter workshop. Starting with a favourite poem, phrase or lyric we’ll construct our own beautifully ornate piece of calligraphy.

Working with metal leaf over Celtic and Italian Renaissance inspired script we’ll add colour, pattern, texture and line to create figurative and abstract embellishments with ink and watercolour.

Students will hone their design and drafting skills, experiment with font styles and other illustrative elements to develop an original and magnificent manuscript.
