About the Course

One day Calligraphy Workshop The Uncial script
This one day workshop offers experienced guidance and instruction for beginners and those with some experience of calligraphy
The Uncial Hand dates back to the 5th century and is seen in manuscripts such as the Book of Kells. This is an unusual script since it is neither miniscule nor majuscule but a single alphabet which in its contemporary form lends itself to some decorative and distinctive designs. We will be using a broad edged nib, ink and gouache to create a small inscription.

Please bring a short quotation ( about 9 words will suffice) you would like to write out using your new skills.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
