To vellum or not to vellum - that is the question! with Cinque Ports Scribes (FULL)

To vellum or not to vellum - that is the question! with Cinque Ports Scribes (FULL)

Can’t decide between paper or vellum?  Is it parchment or vellum?  Not worked on vellum before?  Worried it’s too technical/too scary/too expensive/you’ll get it wrong?   Tina will give the benefit of her 20 years’ experience with wonderful vellum and help allay the above worries.  NB we will not be stretching vellum.

Beautiful to write and paint on, the advantages of vellum are its longevity, translucency and it’s uniqueness – no two pieces are the same.  It is also more forgiving than paper to make corrections on. By the end of the day you’ll feel more confident making a choice between paper and vellum.

You will be able to study different types of parchment and vellum; experiment on a small piece of flat vellum by raising the nap and make corrections and erasures.  Those who wish can make a start on a ‘finished’ piece of prepared vellum 21×13 cm.  A very short quote or small, simple piece of illumination 10×10 cm.

All the design and layout for this MUST be done prior to the workshop as there won’t be time on the day to look at design issues. TOP TIP – keep it very simple.

The painted inscriptions of David Jones have enjoyed a "Renaissance".

We will study the technique David Jones used and add our own “twist”! At the end of the day you should leave with a painted quote.

Expressive calligraphy with origami book

Visiting calligrapher, Sue Smith, is coming to town! During Sue's class we will look at ways at developing texture in calligraphy by experimenting with different rhythms and layers. We will use a variety of tools and the specific marks that they make. 

Participants ideally should have a good working knowledge of at least one script, both majuscules and minuscules, though it would be possible to do this workshop using only handwriting if necessary. 

We will work towards producing a small origami book full of ideas and sample textures as a reference for future use in calligraphic pieces. In the time allotted it will not be possible to complete a full book but instruction will be given on the very simple process necessary to finish later. 

A few spaces left £35. Message for more details.
