Medieval Herbals and Versal Lettering
Friday 9th September 10am - 4pm
Our ancient ancestors, Aristotle and those living in Byzantium, before him, understood and shared the power of plant remedies via the recording and copying of Herbal Manuscripts. These fascinating historical books with highly stylised and surprising plant illustrations and paintings will be the source of inspiration for this workshop where you will create stylised images of common herbs, learn about their medicinal properties and write out their names in English and Latin in beautiful hand drawn versals. The resulting artwork would be something to hang in your kitchen of gift to a friend.
Join artist Adele Dark and explore the fascinating world of medieval herbals and versal lettering to create your own creations.
