Nothing captures our imagination like the illuminated manuscript. From the Lindisfarne Gospels to the Book of Kells these ancient texts are constructed with care and precision. These manuscripts have captured the essence of time and communicate complex visual imagery. This five week course will provide an historical overview to the creation and construction of illuminated manuscripts including pigment choices and binding. We will follow St. Columbkille from his home in Ireland to the small Island of Iona, Scotland, where he began work on the Book of Kells in a small scriptorium. Our practical application will be in learning and implementing sacred geometry and Celtic knotwork, which will conclude with the creation an illuminated manuscript page.
