Illuminated letter S with knotwork and pattern, Sadelle Wiltshire 2017Saturday. May 6, 10-3pm
Celtic Illuminated Letters
Immanuel Retreat Center, Bellows Falls, VT

Let’s take a page from the monks and have fun making a custom monogram using interlaced knots, patterns and color as we delve into the art of Illuminated Lettering.   There will be opportunities for folks who both have experience with knotwork, and those without to take an alphabet form, enlarge it, and apply decor in a Celtic style using patterning (or Zentangle), a bit of knotwork interlacing, lots of color and a touch of metallic gold or silver*.

Worksheets and handouts and mechanical pencils included.   Please bring a sketchbook and a fine tipped black pen.  You are welcome to bring some of your other colored media, though I’ll have a variety on hand for you to play with!

*In the interest of keeping costs down, we will not cover gold leafing in this workshop but use substitutes such as metallic pens and paints.

Regular tuition: $70
