Celtic Lettering (Calligraphy)

Rooted in History, Uncials are a delightful rounded letterform that are easy to learn and useful. In this class we will study a few historical samples from the Book of Kells and the Lindisfarne Gospels (both written around 800 AD.) With this inspiration we will learn how the basic shapes are made that form the alphabet. Next we will use a Calligraphy pen to write the alphabet. Understanding how to use the pen will be an important part of this class.

Also introduced will be the opportunity to use Uncials to write simple quotes or sayings. With its Irish roots, the Uncial letters make a perfect script for the Irish blessing or other Celtic quotes -just in time for the upcoming St. Patrick's Day celebrations.
