CALLIGRAPHY for BEGINNERS - "Uncommon Uncials"

 

On this day, 13 October, you will discover the pleasure of writing with the broad-edged pen.  Looking at calligraphy history, we will consider the beautiful St Cuthbert Gospel, from the Wearmouth-Harrow monastery, written sometime before 716AD.  Calligraphy techniques:  after practising how to make the letters, we will adjust a few elements of the Uncial script to make it more modern, then write out a short quotation.

For those who already have some calligraphy experience, we can explore some of the many variations, and maybe draw some letters for painting and decoration, and perhaps even add some gold!
