In this day and age ...





It is refreshing to see that special interest in medieval illumination still continues. Earlier this year Betty Debnam from the Art Society of Tasmania asked if I had a date available for a one day introduction to medieval illuminated letters so we set to our diaries deciding on April 8, yesterday!

With thirteen eager participants all visual artists, we drew, we lay down gold, we painted, painted again and finally we added the finishing touches with white vine highlights. The loveliest chatter, then a quiet so quiet you could hear a pin drop. Participants and tutor departed for home happy yet exhausted!

For the love of letters ...
