Event description

Description

This class meets on Sunday, April 15, 2018

Celtic knots are stylized, two-dimensional drawings of interlaced knot work. Found in the stunning seventh and eighth century monastic manuscripts of the British Isles,Celtic knots are among the most well-known graphic designs dating back to antiquity. In addition to some of the earliest known books—Durrow, Kells and Lindesfarne Gospels—these knots appear in architecture, metalwork and jewelry. The art of Celtic knots provides a creative connection to a rich and beautiful culture as well as a lively way to adorn modern-day greeting cards, book marks and other surfaces.

In this workshop you’ll learn an easy, step-by-step process for drawing and coloring beautiful Celtic knots, and view copies of manuscript book art from the period. You don’t have to be an artist—or Irish—to learn this decorative art.

Note: This course is for beginning students and anyone with art or calligraphic experience who wants to learn something new and exciting. Previous experience is not necessary!
