Illuminated lettering and celtic art workshops

After a number of years running art workshops at Brantwood using Graphite Chisel Points and Watercolour we decided to add something new, picking up on an area of interest that Patrick has had for many years. In fact he used to run evening classes in Illuminated Lettering about ten years ago in Exeter.

The workshops are intended as an introduction to producing original interpretations of traditional Illuminated Lettering and Celtic art work patterns.

They will provide a brief overview of historical background and then some practical help in analysing and understanding the complexities of illumination and design.  Activities are designed to help you produce simplified examples of your own and give you ideas for producing some interesting end products.

£55 per person per day. All materials provided.

For more information call Patrick on 01229 889101 or visit the Brantwood website.

Self catering accommodation with views across Coniston Water and the fells is available in the Eyrie at Brantwood.
