This hands-on practicum begins with a historical overview of the art of manuscript illumination, followed by detailed instruction in the use of ornamental design, calligraphy, drafting, and gold leaf. Students will take home their own original illumination, a small watercolor set, and beginning drafting materials. For ages 16+ with intermediate artistic skill and experience. Experience with manuscript illumination is not necessary. A 30-minute lunch break is included in the workshop schedule, though lunch is not provided.

Artist/Instructor Amy Fagin has been creating multi-layered, thematically inspired illuminations that celebrate life and human connections since 1985. She has taught illumination workshops around the world to students of all ages, from beginners to professional artists.
