This course is aimed at all levels. You may learn a new script e.g. Foundational, Italic, Uncials, Roman Capitals and complete a small project at the end of the course.

Those with more experience can learn a more advanced script (or revising/adapting one you’ve already learned) for use in projects that can include embossing, coloured backgrounds, bookmaking and basic gilding / illumination. This term we are learning Carolingian with the aim of making a small book using Japanese Stab Binding. You may make a manuscript book if you prefer.
