Celtic Calligraphy - Uncial Script

  • Toukley Art Gallery Wallarah Peace Park, Gorokan NSW 2263 Australia (map)

The Uncial script is based on early Roman and Anglo-Saxon examples from 7th century illuminated manuscripts. It is a lovely round hand as seen in ‘The Hobbit‘ & ‘Lord of the Ring’ trilogies. This is a calligraphy script suitable for cards, invitations or penning your favourite quote.

If you’ve always wanted to learn calligraphy this script is the one to start with. If you want to brush up on your calligraphic skills or learn another hand, this course is for you. Suitable for beginners to intermediate.

Tue 14th 9:00 to 12:00 - This day is all about the basics. You will be guided through the characteristics of the Uncial script, the language of calligraphy, tips and tricks to fix common problems and paper choices.

Tue 21st 9:00 to 12:00 -  Using what you have learnt on day one you will use the Uncial script to pen a short quote. This will include learning to decorate your calligraphy with a basic Celtic knot pattern and simple application of colour.
