Artistic Lettering

This new group meets on the 1st Monday of each month 10 am to 12 pm in the Leadon Bank Craft Room

A group or those interested in drawing and painting images i.e. dragons, flowers, Celtic designed around individual letters.

The practice of illumination — adding decoration to book manuscripts — dates back to the early fifth century and continued into the Middle Ages, when scribes, monks, and other artists used richly coloured pigments as well as gold and silver leaf to decorate the pages of books and Bibles. The glittering materials used were said to "light up" or illumine the text.

We have met for three sessions so far with new members joining each month. We have been developing our skills with each session. We work as a team each bringing something to the group and sharing it with the other members. We individually decide which letter we would like to draw and paint, some choose simple designs and others quite elaborate. Every member has their own unique style and aim. Ideas and materials have been shared either via books or printed from the internet. The time passes quickly as we are concentrating on our task; it’s very relaxing and therapeutic.

As a new group we are looking for more members
