About the Course
Take your gold work to the next level!
This illumination workshop focus solely on the use of manuscript gesso and loose leaf gold. Raising the gold on gesso means that it can be burnished to a high shine producing beautiful resutls. It is a more advanced technique than the one used on our Illuminated Manuscripts day course so makes a interesting next step for those who have some experience. No drawing skills necessary as there will be a choice of medieval designs for students to choose from. Students may bring their own brushes (sable sizes 000 and 1 are recommended) or use those supplied.
Tutor: Toni Watts
Toni has been awarded the Diploma in Traditional Art from The Prince’s School in London and learnt from some of the few master illuminators in the UK. She hopes in turn, to contribute to the survival of these wonderful traditional skills and currently teach, lecture and exhibit throughout the UK. She was Artist in Residence at Lincoln Cathedral between 2015 -2016 and is their present Manuscript Illuminator.
