Ms Patricia Lovett (Professional scribe and illuminator)
Maximum: 15 students
Venue: Senate House

This course has an additional cost of £6

This course will follow through the process of preparing parchment, transferring a copied image on to parchment, using real gold leaf, painting with the very fine sable brushes similar to those of mediæval illuminators and ending up with a copied mediæval miniature to take home. (No experience required.)

A detailed, practical lecture and workshop with an opportunity to learn and put into practice more than several techniques 

I have thoroughly enjoyed this course and, somewhat to my surprise, I have a completed miniature to take home with me. I found it fascinating to go through the processes which a medieval scrib would have and I will find this knowledge and experience very valuable in my day job as an archivist.
