Illuminated Letter

Dear Members and Followers,

Illumination is the art of painting a letter, adding a background of diapering, gold, foliage or historian (telling a story in picture).
We will discuss how illumination has changed throughout the centres and work on vellum or watercolour paper in gouache, the traditional medium.
Vellum can be supplied at a small cost or supply your own if you wish to experience working on skin.
A materials list will be sent to all participants prior to the workshop.
The workshop is 10am to 4pm May 3rd 2014 - $40 members and $45 non-members.
