Medieval Zentangles

  • Somersby Farm 29 Viitasalo Rd Sth Somersby NSW Australia

This workshop explores some 12th century doodling to decorate Versal letterforms as used in medieval manuscripts of that time. You will learn the basics of drawing Versals, a majuscule (capital) letterform which was written at the beginning of verses in the body of text on a 12th century manuscript page. In contemporary use these letters can also be used for the text of a piece. The 'zentangles' are the fine lined decorative doodlings that were done to highlight the Versal letters. You will learn the simple shapes and squiggles that characterise this decoration.
