Event Details

This class meets on Saturday/Sunday: April 1 & 2, 2017

10:00 am to 4:00 pm

A Cadel is a letter composed of a series of tape-like strokes, nearly parallel lines which interweave and knot together to produce a complete letter—ranging from simple to complex. These capital letters were used as a single initial letter or versal or multiple letters in headings and historically were confined to secular work. The cadel initials were most common in the fifteenth century, and they were occasionally used in sixteenth and early seventeenth-century documents and writing manuals as well. The oldest example found was in the 1409 prayer book, the Trés Riches Heures du Duc de Berry by Jean Flamel. There is no one standard lettering style for cadels. The class will cover how the scribes have interpreted them over the years. After learning several of the letters, basic strokes and cadel designs, you will be ready to start creating your own beautiful Cadels. This  class covers  a very unique and individualize style of lettering with no standard forms.
